14. Now you create a item in your list (I called it “Nummer 1”) and then you have to click on the ellipses (…) and click on Workflows.

Note: We didn’t change the start options of the workflow. So in this case we have to start it manually.


16. After a page refresh you should be able to see the new created item from the workflow.


17. If you want to see the details of your workflow you can click on “Stufe 1” (Stage 1).


18. There you can see the details about your workflow.
