Launch a workflow from a button
Is this possible?
Thanks for supporting the Ribbon Workbench!
The beta version of the Ribbon Workbench 2016 now support smart buttons. The initial smart button solution allows adding workflow buttons ~ – for more info see http://develop1.net/public/post/Smart-Buttons-in-the-Ribbon-Workbench.aspx

i am using Ribbon Workbench 2016 beta but the custom button does not show in the ribbon. I followed this reference http://ribbonworkbench.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/132235-create-a-workflow-short-cut-ribbon-button-no-code
Surely 2016 Actions gives a nice way to call a workflow?
Please apply this also

Scott, the article you linked doesn't mention what to write in the jscripts needed. "RibbonActions.js" and "form.js". Would it be possible for me to get such info? Otherwise I can't follow the procedure since I don't have the jscripts needed for it to work. The article to create a dialog short-cut button does the opposite, as it advises exactly what to write in the jscript.
I'm still working on this feature, but in the meantime, take a look at :
A "Launch Dialog" xrm.utility function might be nice also.

I would even amend this by adding another functionality. I would like it to be possible to add a command that will directly link a report to my button.
