  • You can have recursive workflow call. Period between 2 recursive calls can be control using Wait condition in Workflow

  • Try call your workflow in .net app, the run the .net app as scheduled job.

    Something like this:



                    ExecuteWorkflowRequest request = new ExecuteWorkflowRequest();

                    request.WorkflowId = new Guid("yourparentworkflowid");

                    request.EntityId = new Guid("recordid");

                    ExecuteWorkflowResponse response = (ExecuteWorkflowResponse)OrgService.Execute(request);


                catch (Exception ex)
