Hello Experts,

Need help to create a workflow between to custom list.  Beginier in sharepoint foundation  not a programmer I’m using sharepoint designer 2010

I’m having 2 lists;
-       1st list  jobs available,
-      2nd list candidate that apply for the job.

I have a job # that I’m referring too for another worlflow and should be unique. I have another field on both list named job status like open , closed, hold.
My current workflow should set, when the job status change on the 1st list ,  the job status of all person that have the current job #on the second list.  For now, my workflow is doing the job only for the first one that match the condition.

How can I make it works for all items that match the condition…

Thanks,

This is dificult to do with SharePoint designer 2010 out of the box - it does not allow loops nor is able to edit multiple items at one time.

You can try a workaround described here http://sharepointsolutions.blogspot.com/2008/05/looping-through-items-in-sharepoint.html (it's ofr 2007 but will work the same in 2010) but it's not very elegant solution.

I would recommend using some commercial 3rd party solution for workflows in SharePoint - there are much more powerfull and do not force you to do some strange workarounds.

Didn't test the Workaround  but he confirm there is no way to do it without 3rd party solution or programmation
