Workflow (webhook) question - trigger on a data change via action
I have an event action that when I save a form for table 1, changes the value of a field in another table, called webhook status (action type - execute an action on a set of rows).
Currently, my workflow rule is looking at the webhook status table where the action is changing the data, not at the initial form, because I want to trigger the workflow from several different tables/forms and having 1 workflow instead of many would be ideal.
It makes sense to me that the change in the webhook status table, the one the workflow rule is looking at, should count as a data change, therefore triggering my workflow to run.
Right now, it isn’t running.
If I link the workflow to the form itself, it runs as intended.
Can a workflow rule only be triggered when the data change is happening from adding a new row or updating the row through a form instead of an action?
