    Hey Colin, sorry it's taken so long for someone to respond to your post.

    This is not possible.  I've commonly seen this requested for the purpose of changing the status of the Pull Sheet or Quote once the prep begins.  But no, there's no way to trigger a workflow action with your 1st scan or the associated Manifest creation.

    Thank you for the response.  I'm just disappointed that it can't happen that way.  It seems like a big hole in available actions in an otherwise very robust and configurable workflow section.  That first scan is a major step in the workflow, and having to do it manually is just leaving a big opening for human error.  I'm a firm believer that computers should be doing things that computers are good at, and people should be doing things that people are good at.

    Yeah, I agree with the sentiment.  It would be a nice workflow action trigger, much like triggering a workflow action from "Finalize".
