Workflows RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a one main (parent) workflow , based on some conditions  executes a child workflow in it. But i have to use a parent workflow step value in the child workflow. Is there any way to achieve this?

    Example:  an activity record is created in parent workflow process, the guid of this record should be set in child workflow record.

    Is there any way to pass the value between parent workflow to child workflow using wizard or custom coding ?

    Try the following, from what I can understand, it might help you.

  • Hi Samuel,

    You cant pass variables like this between workflows, you can however with a dialog (unsure if a dialog would be practical in your situation however). Jon's custom workflow activity that he references is used to trigger multiple workflows against records which exist at the end of a child relationship so may not help you here. If on the other hand it is of use, then check out our Workflow Essentials which provides this very workflow in 2013 and 2015 versions.
