Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:
When a user is viewing or editing an opportunity they should have an "Export" button available to them. When they click this button a workflow is triggered which then sends out an outbound message.
From what I've found so far it sounds like there is no built-in way to do this. The best recommendation I've come across is to create a custom button and write some Apex to call the workflow... somehow.
I haven't been able to find any examples to go along with the recommendations I've come across. I would really appreciate any suggestions or other ways to accomplish what I need to do along with a small code sample.
I've been doing Salesforce development for less than a week and I've been reading as much documentation as possible. Needless to say I am very new at this.
