Update contacts when appointment is completed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,

    I created a date field on my contact form called "Last Appointment." I would like to create a workflow that runs whenever an appointment is marked as complete that does the following:

    1) Reads the Start Time of the Appointment
    2) For every contact in the "Required Attendees" field, paste the value from step one into the Last appointment Field.

    This way, I can run a report on contacts that shows me the date of my last appointment with them.

    I created a Workflow that runs for Appointments when their status changes. It has one step: Run child workflow
    The child workflow runs for contacts, and will have one step: update the Last appointment" field with the date of the appointment

    How do I do this?

  • Hi, Alex.

    It seems that this is impossible without development and custom workflow actions. Check this url .

    Samples of custom workflow actions you can find here .

  • As Andriy says this can't be done with standard workflows. If you were accessing the record the appointment was regarding you might have a chance but not for the multiple attendees.
