Reformat email address RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to create a workflow that takes the text from a field that should have been formatted as a URL and copies it to a field that is formatted as a URL. Currently my on-demand workflow checks if the field in question has data, and if so, I have the next step as Update and the new, properly formatted field with the following dynamic values:

    Operator=Append With

    Look for=User/Secondary Email

    But when I open the form with the incorrect field not being empty and run the workflow, nothing happens. What am I missing?

  • hello nasyrax,

    workflows are like background processing engine. Similar to plugin, they are triggered on server side update/setstate operations.if youwish to make a change on the form and want to see it immediately, you have towrite JavaScript.

    unless you save the record and run ondemand workflow, the workflow will not get the field that is updated on the form.

    hth.
