I want to create new column and in that column I want any link/button and after clicking on it I want to make copy of same document/item inside same library/list.

Is it possible with OOTB workflow?


The basic SharePoint designer workflow has only three types of trigger as listed below,

  1. Trigger the workflow when a item is created
  2. Trigger the workflow when a item is edited
  3. Manual trigger of workflow

Hope you were aware how all these triggers work.

So, you cannot start a workflow on a click of a link. Either you should use some javascript to trigger a workflow or complete the entire copying task through JavaScript.

And the most simple way is create a designer workflow to copy item and use manual trigger option to perform the task.
