fire and forget

Paul Cannell 10 years ago in Server / Execution updated by Gandalf 10 years ago 1
When performing a longer running activity such as file processing id like to fire off the workflow. Have it return to me as the called immediately. Then internally it can email me / whoever when its complete. At the moment the call to the workflow is blocking.
All done:

1. Open the large view of the workflow on the design surface by double clicking on it.
2. Below the Input and Output mappings, you will see a checkbox: Execute workflow asynchronously.
3. Selecting this checkbox will fire off a command to execute the workflow and continue processing.

NOTE: Output mappings from the asynchronous workflow will be ignored.
