We are looking for an action which can be installed on the main page to update a list element on the subsite? In the given action "Update element" you can not select the certain subsite. Any experiences?
if you want to update the same fields, indipendent of the site the item is, you can do that using sharepoint webservices:
- you can call the webservices of the selected site by building the url of the webservice
- you define the fields you want to update
The only thing is that you have to know the ID of the element, so probably you to do a previous query to retrieve the correct ID from some filter
You can use the "Update multiple items" action to specify another site than the current one.
Hope it helps
Thank you for your quick help.
The problem is that we do not want to select one fix subsite. We want to select a variable subsite which composed of the URL from the main page and a variable. So the workflow have to update different subsite elements depending on which element the workflow was started.
thank you for your quick answer.
Your hint sounds very useful. I will test it immediately. Thank you!
