Hi,

I build wf and bound it to specific library document.

Now, I want wf to start when the new folder is added or its property is changed.

It does not happen.

I created ny custom content type, when the parent folder - on it wf does not start either.

Maybe there some flag that I should to set - to enable starting workflow on specific content types

Thanks

Are you getting any errors in your SharePoint logs from your workflow

I found that sometimes when workflows weren't starting when I expected them to, it was because there was an error in the workflow during start, and it didn't warn me through the user interface. I could only see the errors in the logs. It's very hard to debug.

Where do I see the logs

I am writing to "log to hostory" log but the only place I see it is inside workflow status

Ii want to mention that the work flow is started OK on doc event, but is not started on folder event.
