WorkPoint Automate - Common Trigger Conditions

Article published on the 16th of March, 2022.

Note that the contents of this article may change in the future due to ongoing development of WorkPoint Automate.

This article will be expanded upon in the future to include more examples of common trigger condition setups.

1. Introduction

In this article, we will give some examples of common configurations of trigger conditions for WorkPoint Automate.

We will give examples of both basic setups and advanced setups using Adaptive Expressions.

An example of a common trigger condition could be to only trigger subsequent steps in the process if the triggering entity is not the master site on a business module.

2. Examples

   2.1. Trigger only if entity is not master site

In this example, we want to execute the subsequent steps of a process if a meta data change happens to an entity on a business module, but only if that entity is not the master site.

       2.1.1. Basic

       2.1.2. Advanced

   2.2. Trigger only if entity is in "Active" stage

In this example, we want to trigger the subsequent steps in a process only if the triggering entity is in the stage "Active" (using stage management). Note that WorkPoint uses content types in SharePoint for stage management. We will therefore use the ContentType field of the entity to check for the stage.

       2.2.2. Advanced
