If I have a checkbox column for metadata and that checkbox is unchecked when the workflow starts, but is checked at some point during the workflow running, when will the workflow be able to realize that the checkbox has updated? Does a wait or pause action need to occur?

  • It won't, it starts with the "begin" data and doesn't refresh while running. You could make your workflow fire with an on change. Then read out your checkbox – M.P. Jul 18 '18 at 14:56
  • @user3328306 if this was the case, wouldn't the wait action not actually work? – vanblart Jul 18 '18 at 17:32
  • No because the workflow is already started and it doens't "see" new changes – M.P. Jul 19 '18 at 7:40
  • 1
    You can start 2 workflows.. 1 the current you have and 2nd the one with a wait, which will trigger onchange. That would work. – M.P. Jul 19 '18 at 7:41
