Workflow assignee automation from additional data field?

v8.1.1.7515

 

Can a workflow be automated to make assignee from additional data fields?

 

If i have a record type with an additional field of "next" set to location type.

 

and a workflow step that is not assigned on the workflow template.

 

When the previous step is completed can i make HPRM look to the "next" additional field and set that location as the next step assignee?

Typically if an activity is unassigned, RM will not assign to another location without some kind of user interaction.

You can obviously set defaults from the WF template, so that the assignment path is predetermined.

what about leveraging the sdk to make the assignment?

You could probably get something going with the SDK, not my forte. 

 

Hopefully someone can see this post an offer some thoughts.

You very well could write a generic Add-In and attach it to Workflow.

I've got a plugin that does exactly this. Shoot me a message for more details.
