I am currently trying to implement a custom workflow where one can copy a list item in sharepoint 2013.

This is what I did to achieve this:

  1. add a custom workflow ("copy list element")

    • workflow version: sharepoint 2010
    • start setting: allow manual start
    • workflow:
      • action: "Copy listelement in c̲u̲r̲r̲e̲n̲t̲_̲el̲e̲m̲e̲n̲t̲ to l̲i̲s̲t̲n̲a̲m̲e̲"
  2. add a button to the ribbon

    • custom action ("copy element")
      • Actiontype: initiate worfklow ("copy list element")

But what happens now is that everytime I click the button, the user sees a new page: "Start workflow" with two buttons "Start" and "Cancel". What I rather would like to have: when the user clicks the new button the workflow should start without asking.
