    RE: loop in workflows

    Hello Fateme,

    I hope you are well.

    You can create a workflow and set up that it can trigger based on record created or field update and also based on child execution.

    In case that you configure child execution, you can recall the same workflow but using the child request.

    It is very important to clarify that if this scenario occurs a lot of times in a few minutes, the workflow will be stopped due to detected looping.

    The depth used to detect a loop is configured on the MaxDepth setting.

    In online environments, this configuration can't be changed, and the value is 8.

    Check these documentations about best practices:

    I hope it can help you.

    Best Regards,
