  • Can you try this.

    - Create a two Option Field (Boolean)

    - Create a custom JavaScript code that changes the value on the field and add it to a ribbon button trigger.

         - Run WorkFlow on field change.

    This works. Not sure if it is the best solution but it is a working one.

    Good Luck :)

  • JavaScript to execute a workflow would look something like this - you will need to GUID of the workflow to be executed:

    function ExecuteWorkflowSOAP() {
        var workflowId = "99999999-9999-9999-9999-999999999999";
        var request = [
            "<s:Envelope xmlns:s='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'>",
    				"<Execute xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts/Services' xmlns:i='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance'>",
    					"<request i:type='b:ExecuteWorkflowRequest' xmlns:a='http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts' xmlns:b='http://schemas.microsoft.com/crm/2011/Contracts'>",
    						"<a:Parameters xmlns:c='http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/System.Collections.Generic'>",
    								"<c:value i:type='d:guid' xmlns:d='http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/'>" + Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId() + "</c:value>",
    								"<c:value i:type='d:guid' xmlns:d='http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/'>" + workflowId + "</c:value>",
    						"<a:RequestId i:nil='true' />",
        var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
        req.open("POST", Xrm.Page.context.getClientUrl() + "/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc/web", true);
        try {
            req.responseType = 'msxml-document';
        } catch (e) {}
        req.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/xml, text/xml, */*");
        req.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "text/xml; charset=utf-8");
        req.setRequestHeader("SOAPAction", "http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts/Services/IOrganizationService/Execute");
        req.onreadystatechange = function () {};
