workflow condition Assigned To is not empty? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way in a work flow to check if an Assigned To field (person/group) is empty in SharePoint Designer 2013 text-based workflow? The only option I appear to be able to have is to the use of the equal operator, then I must choose a lookup value.


    There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what you are trying to accomplish.
