Workflow to close Parent Task if all Children Tasks are Marked as Complete RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am struggling in creating a workflow which would mark my parent task as complete once all children tasks(I have subgrid in parent task where I add children tasks) have been marked as complete. I would assume it would be on a wait condition but I could have many children tasks and I guess I am little unsure how to create this wait condition to check whether all children tasks are complete and then complete parent task...

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

  • You can't do this out of the box.  There's no easy way to check all child records on a parent record and then close the parent record.  You'll either have to find another approach, or do some custom development to create a workflow that can do what you want.
