Changes on virtual field does not trigger an Update event


Is it intentional that a value change on a virtual field does not trigger a Update workflow event?

I have defined a virtual field on the parent table that count the remaining children tasks not completed. I thought that the parent workflow event would be triggered on the update of the calculation of this field when children change status (and all of them got completed to make the counter = 0).

I have manually checked the parent action that set the status to completed successfully. The parent query condition returns Y when the counter reach zero.

Yeah… True updates are physical changes. The best thing to do is implement a physical trigger column


I thought I could be lazy and avoid the overhead of creating an action.
