Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Go to the Workflow Rules view.
  3. Select the New button.
  4. Enter a value in the Description field.
  5. Choose Account from the Business Object field.
  6. In the timing field, select On Create Only.

  10. Select Next.
  11. In the Rule Type field select Action.
  12. Choose Assign Me as Owner in the Select Action field.

Create an Account:

  1. Go to the Customers work center.
  2. Go to the Accouts view.
  3. Select the New button.
  4. Choose Prospect from the Role field.
  5. In the Owner field select another user.
  6. Select Save and Open.

This is the expected behaviour. The workflow rule enters the Owner only if the field is left blank on Account creation.


This workflow rule works as designed.
