When you right click on a list item, workflows show up and you can select a workflow for that item.
Is there a way to provide a filter for a workflow for a user to search for a particular item such as a month column or last name column and run that workflow only on that?
EDIT: Yes I should clarify more. Apologies. When you right click workflows and select a workflow by clicking on that workflow button, it usually goes the next page with a button to start. I have seen along with that button start a field box or two. What is it's major function and how do you do that? It seems like it can be used as a filter or modify or update a field against that workflow.
