This is most probably a simple question, but can you start a workflow from in ArcMap. I can see from the toolbar that you can view current jobs and open them up to view them but can not see any icon that will allow you to create a new job from ArcMap. Does this require a customised step?
Many thanks and looking forward to hearing from you
We do not provide this capability out of the box yet. The SDK allows you to do this though. There is also a GP tool utility that is available on the Workflow Manager resource center that shows how to do this through a GP tool. Maybe this is a start for you.
You can post this to the ideas site so that we can get a better idea of how many more people will be interested in this capability.
