Naveen,

I don't think this can be achieved through the configuration !!

 

I am bit curious to know what's the Business case is ? Based on my experience, It doesn't make sense to subject an item / item revision to workflow as soon as it is created. As the data set attached may not be complete.

Only way i see is through the customization. But you have to consider things like:

1) What Item / Item Rev goes thru what workflow process ?
2) Should a workflow task be an Acknowledgement ? whom to assign from the resource pool ?
3) Task duration ? etc etc..

Cheers !

Thanks in advance.

 

The basic requirement is to automatically create a folder directly under Item with a custom folder-name

 

I tried using extension rule "createObjects", but this creates folder with name=itemname (derives name from ITEM)

 

So Im thinking to create 1 step workflow where I can modify above folder name using handler "EPM-Set-property"

 

This is little workaround to create a customfolder(name) under Item Smiley Happy

If you don't mind writing customization, then you can use post action method on Item creation/save as events.

We want to achieve through configuration only.

 

Is there no way to initiate wf automatically on creation of ITEM?

Not unless you want to install the Aerospace template. And that will submit a new Item to WF but won't automagically create a Folder or structure of Folders as you want. I only know of codeful solutions for that level of automation.
