I have full control of a list. I am trying to build a workflow that will update a field based on information being populated from another field. I know how to use SharePoint Designer but don't have access to that tool. I am unfamiliar with their existing workflows as I don't think this team really use them. I'm new to this team. Can you assist me with creating a workflow within the List?

My example is:

Update "Status Field" to choice "yes" when "Are you ready" field is changed to "start".


If you don't have access to SharePoint Designer, then you cannot create custom workflows. If you are using SharePoint Online, then you could use Flow.

It sounds like a pretty simple Calculated Column will do what you described. Something like:

=IF( [Status Field] = "yes", "Start", "some other msg")
