Sharepoint 2007 - set a workflow initiation fields default to be the same as a list item field RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to be able to set a workflow initiation fields default to be, by default, the same as a field in the item that the workflow was launched against.

    I managed to include detail about the item on the page and feed that info into parameters but there still doesn't seem to be a wasy of setting the default value for the initiation field. I noticed defaults are setup in the "*.xoml.wfconfig.xml" file but I have no idea how to setup the defaults. I tried setting a manual default and updating it to the name of the parameter but to no avail - can anyone help?

    If none of this is possible using SP2007 then is it possible to set the field values to empty? I have date fields that will default to today's date if the user doesn't add any data, this is not helpful once the workflow has started.
