Controlling workflow based on content types RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I would like to trigger a different workflow based on different content types, what is the recommended way to accomplish this?  I have a SharePoint list that has numerous content types and based on the content type that is being utilized, I would like to fire off a different workflow on the list or utilize an existing list-based workflow and change the processing within the workflow based on the content type that was utilized.

    Please advise.

  • It seems that Content Type is exposed as a column within the List.  This can then be leveraged within the List-based workflow in combination with If/Else conditional statements to control the workflow process.
