    Hi,

    Workflow execution completely depends upon Trigger Action parameter of the workflow. But in any circumstances you need to first create the workflow from Data Manager and then depending upon business requirement you have to set the Trigger Action. If you want to launch the workflow on importing of records then set the Trigger Action = Record Import and pass the workflow name in against the property Checkout/Workflow under Configuration -> Options of Import Manager. This will import the records and launched the workflow.

    If you dont want to do this then set the Trigger Action property to Manual and execute the import first then manually select the records to be passed in workflow. This condition is not at all related to Record Importing.

    Regards,

    Hi ,

    WF is an essential data governance tool that helps you maintaon authenticity of data, hence Ideally 1st you create a WF then you'll import records. WF trigger depends upon the action you select when you create a WF. it can be: record update,record add,record import, manual. Hence if you select record import option, WF would be triggered automatically as soon as you import teh records.

    Also go through page 286-327 of Data manager reference guide to get more clarity on the subject.

    Hope this helps....
