         Added a simple on demand workflow to a form and left Submit Form unchecked yet workflow still submits form. I've tried adjusting the Pre / Post and both Pre/Post Submit and that doesn't appear to make any difference as form submits in all three scenarios.

    Hello Eric,

    Workflow is working as expected. When the Submit Form property is false on workflow, It is not submitting the data and only executing the workflow.

    To keep the form open on workflow submit, set the page model property ShowFormOnSuccess to true. 

    Thank you,

    Vishal

    This method worked. Is there a simple way to trigger workflow button using Rules Manager or JavaScript?

    Hello Eric,

    I am happy to hear this solution was adequate! It is definitely possible to trigger the workflow button via JavaScript or using the Rules Manager.

    Using the Rules manager, you could use the Run Script Action. The script would use jQuery or vanilla JavaScript to trigger the click event on the target workflow button, it will just require you to know the unique tpc-id of the button (FieldName).

    The script would look something like the following (where workflow is your buttons unique FieldName):

    $("[name=workflow]").click()
    

    Of course this can also be used without the rules manager in an embedded script.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Cheers,
    Josh
