Pinned topic Create Folderset via Workflow

‏2014-03-04T08:17:19Z |

Hi everybody,

can anybody help me with the following problem?

We have a workflow "employee check-in". With this workflow we want to create a folder structure in P8. So e.g. an new employee comes to the company and needs a folder with his name "Carl Smith" and no we want to create all needed sub folder (My Documents, My Mails, My Scans etc) automaticly with a workflow. Is this possible to do or is it also possible with a folder subscription?.

Thank you!

    yes, you can call CE_Operations API to do that in workflow design, and you can only create a top folder, then create subfolders by subscription.

    Hi Sunorth,

     

    thank you for your feedback. Ok as I understood you right I need to configure a CE_OPERATIONS step in the workflow to create a defined folderset.

    With a folder subscription, which I lay on a top entry folder, I start that workflow when a new subfolder under this top folder is created an the workflow creates the folder set right ?

     

    Thank you very much!
