Workflow Start Form - Default Lookup Value

Question asked by on Nov 14, 2017

I have a list of sessions with a lookup field titled Event.

Users need to run a workflow to copy the session and be given the opportunity to change the event or keep the same event that is associated to the original session being copied. So I have the event ID, but I don’t know what it is until the user selects a session to be copied.


The desired configuration is to have the selected session’s event already selected in the dropdown list so that if the user wants to change the event from Test Session 1 to Test Session 2 in the lookup field, once they click the dropdown arrow to change, Test Session 2 would be right there for them to select and they wouldn’t have to scroll in the list.


My configuration right now simply includes the current item event as the placeholder text, but because it’s placeholder text, it’s not actually selected and the user has to scroll to get to their choice. This is certainly a hack on my part. I have looked up and tried js based on forum postings, but I’m not strong in js and I’m lost.


Can someone please help guide me through exactly how to do this?
