  • Hi

    Yes you can achieve this by following below steps -

    1.) Create a workflow on item creation for list A.

    2.) If you want to perform update based on some condition, use If condition before Update Action else directly use Update Action.

    3.) For action "Update item in this list",click on "this list" link to open lookup window.

    4.) From List drop down, select 'List B' and click on Add. Select "Status" from field drop down and "Issued" from value drop down.

    5.) Now to filter above update to happen only one item, you need to find that item. That is done by using bottom "Field" and "Value" drop downs.

    6.) So for example you have column "ParentID" in List A which maps to a column "ChildID" in List B, then you have to select column "ChildID" from field dropdown and then click on "fx" button for Value, it will open a pop up.

    7.) IN the popup window, select "Current Item" in Data Source, "ParentID" column in "Field from Source", click Ok.

    8.) Now save and publish your workflow.

    Hope it helps.
