Bulk Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a list with workflow attached to it. I am displaying all the list items in a grid view with a check box next to it. Below the grid there is a submit button. The user selects multiple list items that is displaying in the grid, and then clicks the submit button. In the submit button event, i want to trigger the workflow of the selected list items. Is this possible in sharepoint? If possible, please suggest me the ways to accomplish this.

  • In JUST SharePoint, you could...

    1. Assign the workflow to the OnChange event.

    2. Have the submit change a boolean flag in each of those items.  That simple item change will trigger the workflow for each of the items (individually).  Don't forget to reset the flag at the end of the workflow.

    If you have CorasWorks, then you can use an Action to assist with this.
