Document Set Creation Error

Jul 28, 2014 at 4:52 PM
First, an apology, this question probably does not directly involve SPServices, but I've gotten such good SharePoint advice here, I thought I'd ask.

We have an odd error that we're having trouble understanding.

On the "welcome" page of a document set, we have a web part with some buttons that are used to start workflows for selected documents in the set. Sometimes, when a user initially creates a doc set, the buttons are non-functional. Nothing appears to happen when they're clicked. If the user returns to the welcome page later, the buttons work. Also, if a different user views the page when the creating user can't click on the buttons, the different user is able to click on the buttons, and start the workflow.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

I think it would have to depends on how you've created the buttons. It sounds like they are not active unless the new item has been created, which makes sense. It also could be a permissions issue.
