Trigger Automation

I have created a workflow and I want it to be apply a request approval function when a Column A is checked, under certain conditions (see screenshot below).

However, when I run the workflow, I receive an approval request for all the items within the conditions NOT when column A is checked.

I want the workflow to run for just items where column A is checked but it seems to be ignoring this.... please help.


  • Hi @Dell

    Why don't you also "add another condition" where the function is InfoSec to have where Column A is checked.

    That way it will only send the approval when both those conditions are met.

    Let me know if that works.

    Kind regards

    Hi @Dell

    I hope you're well and safe!

    If you're running it manually, it ignores the triggers.

    • Manually running a workflow bypasses all trigger criteria but respects workflow conditions.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week & Happy New Year!
