In workflow I create activity 'custom form submitted' linked to 'send email'

Warning saying 'The workflow needs at least one activity to be set as a starting state'

The first activity is someone submitting a webform - what should be the starting state?

Forms submits but no email sent??

So select that form submission activity, click on the button that looks like an on/off button, and save.

Thank you - I completely overlooked the power button.

The workflows are very slick! A vast improvement on rules - site fully migrated to 1.7.1 now thanks

I had the similar problem. Did exactly the same thing as Bertrand said and that warning message disappeared. But still not getting any email.

I have a Comment module in my project which I want to be able to send email when any comment is added (published). Because all comments are getting published immediately I am thinking that emails will also go out at once. Please see the attached images:

Sorry for adding a different question. How can I make a comment to be in non-published state by default?

Please help!
