Link to View Pending Workflows

I’ve been getting into Timed Workflows lately and I’ve found myself consistently using the Timed-Workflow Monitoring page to see what’s going on with a record. I made it a bit easier on myself by adding a custom link to my Opportunities that let me see the pending workflows for a record. Thought I’d share it.


It’s broken down as follows:

  • /setup/own/massdelete.jsp?ftype=WFTimeQ – this brings you to the Monitoring page.
  • &col0=TargetEntity – chooses the “Record Name” option in the first row.
  • &oper0=e – sets the comparison operator to equals
  • &fval0={!Opportunity.Name} – Puts the Opportunity Name in the value to search for.

The best the link can do is bring you to the page with the form filled in.  It’s up to you to click the search button.  So it’s down to 2 clicks from about 8.

    For some reason this did not work for me. Typing the record name into the search yielded the desired results, but the link does not work. Any thoughts?

    Not sure. Reply back and copy/paste the link you used. The example I gave was doing it from Opportunities. If you are clicking the link from another object, you’ll need to use a different merge field.

    It’s actually weird that I ran across this post. I was building this exact functionality earlier 🙂

    This didn’t work for me earlier. It essentially added additional picklist values and when i hit Search, it returned everything.
