Discussion Board Workflow Conditional Start

Question asked by steph24 on Jan 17, 2018

Hi, I'm creating a Workflow for my discussion board, I only want the workflow to start for new items, not when individuals reply.

 

I've tested it and the workflow works if I set "Start when items are created" to "Yes" - but it then starts a new workflow for every reply the discussion receives too. 

I've tried doing a Conditional Start trying to filter only on fields that appear when creating a new discussion (e.g. category or Item ID) but the workflow then doesn't start at all. 

 

Any advice on how to get the workflow to start ONLY when a new discussion is added?

 

Thanks in advance :-)
