I have developed an entity intended for staging imported data and doing some validation, as well as an entity that will be used as a batch reference, so that I can ensure all staged records in a batch will go into the system together. How can I run a workflow on all the related child records from the batch entity form?
Best How To :
Because standard CRM Workflow steps don't support the iteration of 1:N relationships, you need to build a custom workflow activity.
Lucky for us there is already one available:
CRM 2011 Distribute Workflow Activity
There is also a small tutorial (powerpoint format), the link is in the same page (last download link in the bottom)
