You may have to use the "Navigate to URL" and type in the server relative url to the workflow initiation form while using tokens for the ID

/sites/example/_layouts/IniWrkflIP.aspx?List={ListId}&ID={ItemId}&TemplateID={<templateID of workflow}&Source=<url>

where <url> is wherever you want the user to navigate to after the initiation form has been pressed and <template id of workflow> is the template ID of the workflow you get by going to the initiation form manually and copying it from the URL.

  • Where do you get the template ID? I don't see this on the manual start page.
