I have a form created in InfoPath, that I would like to automatically start the workflow when the file is checked in. I have Sharepoint Designer, but I don't see the field for 'Checked in'.

There is a field under 'Field from source' that says 'Checked out to'. And do I start the workflow when the file is created? Can the workflow be triggered if a file is submitted?
