Run Workflow Smart Button in Ribbon Workbench | XrmToolBox

Here’s how you can use the Run Report button from Smart Buttons in Ribbon Workbench. In case you haven’t yet installed Smart Buttons in your Ribbon Workbench for your organization – Here’s a post for that – Install Smart Buttons for Ribbon Workbench | XrmToolBox

Now that it’s given you might have installed Smart Buttons already, let’s review how you can use the Run Report button for your Organization.


I have a Workflow which updates the Account’s Account Grade field to the value Verified

And the field to be updated is as below –

Run Workflow button

Before we begin, add the entity-only in a Solution and then load it up into Ribbon Workbench –

  1. You’ll see Smart Buttons show up in your Ribbon Workbench.

  2. When you drag the button over to the Grid (Form in this case), you’ll be given this popup window to fill in the details of what the Run Workflow button should do –
    Title should be the title of the Window.
    Workflow Name should be the text Display Name of the Workflow itself.
    Start Workflow Confirmation Text should have the text that should be displayed on the confirmation dialog when clicked on the button.
    Success Callback JavaScript should have a JS snippet of what it should do upon success.
    Error Callback JavaScript should have a JS snipped of what it should do upon error in Workflow execution.

  3. Once you click OK, this is how it will appear.

  4. And that’s it, publish your changes and reload the Page to see the Smart Button to Run the Workflow in action!


Let’s see below on how this Workflow button will work –

  1. On the Account form, I can now see this button being displayed and it has it’s Run Workflow icon built in.

  2. When you click the button, you’ll be seeing this message.

  3. And when it is running, you’ll see this notification on the form.

  4. And when this is done, it’ll change the value (or whatever your workflow is supposed to do).

Hope this helps!
