Does anyone know the steps for creating a run workflow button on a display/edit form. My workflow has an initiation form as well and ideally that would open from the item display/edit form.

It was talked about in post but Im not sure how to achieve the correct outcome.

Cannot start workflow from JS in Display Form

Thank you.

Hope this helps!
