I'm very new to the SharePoint designer and am trying to create workflows at the moment. I've created a new employee list, where I've created a choice column called software and within software there are check boxes for various software so the end user can click which software they'd like installed. I'm trying to create a workflow which in this case will create a case if a box is clicked for example for CRM. I'm stuck on the If statement part.

Can anyone please support?


Use - If CurrentItem:FieldName equal yes

Reference for the details.

Hope this will help you!

  • If I type in CRM, I always get the following error message. "Errors in the workflow prevent it from functioning correctly." – Byrdwatcher1978 Nov 3 '14 at 20:53
  • Since its a choice column, after you select CurrentItem:FieldName the value will be a clickable item..that will bring all the choice values. Not sure what you mean by type in – Amal Hashim Nov 3 '14 at 20:56
  • Thanks for your support Amal. It is a choice value but it's not a dropdown menu its a checkbox list. Don't seem to have an option to select CRM because the checkbox list is not shown. – Byrdwatcher1978 Nov 3 '14 at 21:06
  • Does anyone have a solution for this? I'm still stuck. – Byrdwatcher1978 Nov 4 '14 at 16:40
