Action to trigger a workflow?

I need an action to trigger a workflow that sends a pdf with all the data.
I send a pdf automatically when the status=complete, but there is a person that may need to see the data in a pdf before the status has changed its value.
I just want an action “send PDF”, that would trigger my “send pdf” workflow.
So there is no change/add/delete to my table.
Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

Hi @llheath, take a look at the “Sending Email from an Action Button” section of this article: https://help.appsheet.com/en/articles/961707-workflow

And here’s a sample app: https://www.appsheet.com/samples/An-app-that-sends-email-when-you-click-a-Action-button-on-the-client?appGuidString=7fd5e590-8388-4b20-8087-ba0a7be51607

tl;dr = create a special column that gets changed when you press a button, and that change triggers your workflow rule
