Assigning workflow statuses to item type Text

  • 1.  Assigning workflow statuses to item type Text

    Posted 16 days ago
    Hello,
    I am not able to configure workflow to item type Text. On researching i found that item type Text needs to have a Status field with Picklist, which i added. I still am not able to add item type Text to the list on the workflow settings page. Can i get some help here.
    List of items in workflow setting page

    Hello,
    I have tried to do the same some time ago. It seems the Text Item is not allowed to have a status with workflow. It would not be bad to have such possibility

    Hi Lakshmi,

    Thank you for reaching out! Text items aren't standard items, more like quasi-item types. This is why they can live in any set or folder with other item types. This is also why they may be incompatible with workflows.

    Alessandro,

    Your assessment points to this same conclusion. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! I see you've already been awarded the Collaborator Badge, so I have now added the Advanced Level: Helper Badge to your profile!

    Please reach out with any questions. 

    Best,
