Hello, SharePoint Experts,
I am having this challenge. I need to create a workflow in a Document Library that will be triggered by a certain field property (Document Purpose) that users choose after uploading a PDF file. I see that is not a simple task as the property is entered after the document is created (second step in the upload file sequence of events).
I found this link "Workflow not firing for new documents uploaded to a document library" (http://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/1218/workflow-not-firing-for-new-documents-uploaded-to-a-document-library
) that explains exactly my situation.
The solutions suggested there cannot work for me (I cannot enable versioning and cannot use content approval).
Are there any alternatives?
I kind of have a quick way around by creating an SharePoint alert that work on new files added to a view based on the property value (Document Purpose). In is not acceptable to users, in part, because they need to have a part of the Document Library path, a folder name, in the email, a folder but that is another story).
Any advice is appreciated!
