Workflow Item Menu's in SharePoint 2016

Hello,

We are in the process of migrating from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016. One of the workflows we have was started from an Item Menu. I have that enabled in the Workflow Settings on the 2016 environment, however it is not showing up in the Item Menu. Is this feature still available in 2016? A couple of other things, I'm testing this out on a Dev License also the "Menu item image URL" Field isn't showing up in the workflow settings. Looking at the documentation it looks like that field should still be there?

Thanks,

Nick

Re: Workflow Item Menu's in SharePoint 2016

Hello,

I believe I know what is happening. The Library I'm trying to run this workflow on is a library of Document Sets. It appears that the way SharePoint 2016 handles the Item Menu for Document Sets is different. I've seen reports of others having issues related to adding Custom Actions to the Item Menu on SP2016.

Thanks,

Nick

Nicholas,

I also, am trying to use SP 2016 (on-prem) and Nintex 2016.  However, I am not using a library of Document Sets and the workflow settings for starting on the item menu are not available.

Can anyone confirm they were removed from the 2016 Nintex WF product?

Regards,

Ken

Frank,

This is what we are missing in the workflow settings menu (SP2016 on-prem,

WF2016):

Enable workflow to start from the itemmenu

When selected, lists the workflow on the context menu for list items to

facilitate starting of the workflow. All other menu item related options

are dependent on this setting being checked.

Menu item label

(Available when Enable workflow to start from the item menu is

selected.) The label for the context menu option to start this workflow.

Menu item image URL

(Available when Enable workflow to start from the item menu is

selected.) The URL of the icon for the context menu option to start this

workflow. The URL can be absolute or site relative.
