I created a new entity, mapped it with the Accounts entity and created a subgrid in the Accounts form.
The new entity has a field "To pay" (yes or no). Now there are 5 records of the Account "Testaccount".
In the Accounts form, I created the field "Paid". Now I want to run a workflow when I set the field "Paid" on the Account form to "yes".
It should set the "To pay" field on every record to "yes".
Is this possible with the built-in workflow manager?
it's not possible to update child records with a workflow because you cannot do a loop and there is no way to know which child records to update
So you can do it using a plugin and C# code
but there is a free solution in codeplex which works for both CRM 2011 and CRM 2013
it will allow you to update the child records
This blog will tell you more
