How to stop a workflow that is being paused . RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a workflow that will pause after a user updates one column in the list. The same workflow should stop when the user chooses another column in  the list. The workflow sends out email. How do I go about doing it..?

  • Hi,

    If you condition is to pause for a period if the user selects Column Title = 1 and to stop if the user selects Column "another column", then just add two conditions:

    IF "another column" = is not empty

    Action = stop workflow

    Else if "one column" = updated value

    Action = pause for duration

    Now depending on your logic in your process, you can make the workflow to start on item update and always check these conditions when the item is updated/modified. Sometimes it is best to start the other way around, meaning to first check for the conditions that you don't want, and then apply the ones you would need.
