DDE's and Advanced Workflow
I am running an Advanced Workflow but I also have DDE's that need to occur. I am having trouble with the execution of the DDE's. Some of the DDE's will send a notification. Some DDE's will set values list selections.
The problem I am seeing is that the DDE's do not change the values list values when the conditions are met, no matter which layout I put the DDE on or which node in the AWF the record is in.
Oddly enough, there is a Conditional Layout condition that is met and that DDE works just fine.
Do all DDE's work while waiting on the user to perform an action in the Advanced Workflow? Or are there limitations to using DDE's while using the Advanced Workflow?

Notification DDEs are processed when the record is updated, so these could potentially happen at any point in the workflow depending on the exact configuration.
The other DDEs are applied in the web browser to the user loading the page. If you are not seeing the DDEs fire that you would expect, have you tried using the DDE Event Analyzer to see how the events are being processed?
