Hi All,

Following is the scenario

  • There are two list "Parent" and "Child" as soon as the item is added in the "Parent" a workflow with "Create Item" creates item in "Child"
  • When a new Item is created in "Child" another workflow updated the "ChildListID" column of the "Parent" with the item ID of the "Child" item
  • Now I want to trigger a new workflow when "ChildListID" column of the "Parent" has value.

 

Issues:

  • The condition in  workflow "Start When Item is modified"  is "ChildListID" greater than 0.But the condition never gets trigger because "ChildListID" is getting updated by another workflow.

 

 

Workaround I am using:

  • I have added "Wait until "ChildListID" greater than 0 and have selected "Yes" in "Start When Item is modified".
  • Issue is that the workflow always remain in progress which may impact the performance.

 

Please suggest the best practice
