  • which workflow you are using? Designer workflow/ custom workflow using VS/ Third party workflow ? – Gaurravs Aug 17 '16 at 7:10

Calling a JavaScript function is not supported by any kind of workflow manager which means that you cannot call your java scripts functions in workflow. Now if you want to perform something in list, you have an option of using Web Service. So you can research more on web service instead of calling java script


You can not call JavaScript function but you can call web service from SharePoint workflow.

  • Dipongor is correct. Workflows are running server side. On a .net environment Javascript functions can only be run on the client side. So, no, it is not possible to call a javascript from a workflow. – dinos.kon Aug 17 '16 at 7:23
