Start a workflow when a file is moved in explorer

Hi, 

I have a list workflow that is set to start as soon as a element gets added or modified. This works so far.

However, when a file is moved (not copied) in the document library via explorer view, the Workflow won't start.

How do I trigger a workflow when a file is moved in the explorer view?

We ware using SharePoint 2013 and Nintex Workflow 2013.

Hi Niels,

The workflows triggers when a document is created in the library, this will happen when copy and paste in explorer view.

I really did not get what do you mean by move.

Hi,

I literally mean "Cut & Paste", so Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V. SharePoint does not recognize it as a changed or new file. But I need to trigger the workflow whenever a file location is changed.

I am facing similar issues. Not only in Explorer view, but also when moving a file in Internet Explorer.

Did you ever get a solution for this problem?

We have SharePoint 2013 and Nintex 2013.
