Start a workflow when status field change to UOM Approval. I am using Sharepoint 2010

You can't trigger a workflow based on a change to a particular field. Instead, set the workflow to run when an item is added to the list, and use the action titled "wait for field change in current item".

  • Thanks so much. So on start options. Do I check start automatically when the item is changed? or just keep the allow this workflow to be manually started checked. I really appreciate your help May 1, 2017 at 16:23
  • I assume you want this to happen automatically for any item in the list? If so, start the workflow when a new item is added. Starting manually requires the user to both know how and to remember. Starting for each change means that this could happen multiple times.

  • Want what to go to which group? (You should probably post this as a new question).
