we have a customer that has busily added tons of document entries into file folders into his Teaming 2.1.

We have already done various workflows, but we have now (at least i hope not that its toooo special) special request:

all is fine and dandy when a user -creates- a new entry, and the workflow is started, BUT:
what to do if files already exist in the folder, but should be from now on be associated with the new workflow?

tried it the "standard" way, but doesnt work. (assosciated the workflow with the kind of entry, opened an already existing file entry -> no workflow...)

i really dont want to have to tell the customer that he has to upload all the documents again.

just to have each already existing entry at the starting point of the workflow state would be great.
