Disable only Macros from workflow

Highlighted

Is there a way of specifically disabling only the macros contained within a workflow? Enabling the rest of the workflow to run? If this has come up previously, please link me the thread.

I don't believe there is an option to do this in a simple manner.

 

Wouldn't you macros be dependant on the flow, isn't the data going to flow into and out of them? Is there a reason you want to disable just the macros?

The macros are for data quality checks so the rest of the workflow can run independently. The macros send out emails to areas of the organisation where there are errors in the data. If I run the workflow in addition to when it's scheduled it creates duplicate errors. There is logic in place to remove duplicates but it would still be handy to be able to disable the macros... Alternately I can put them in containers and then disable.

Yep, that was going to be my suggestion. You could have one container for them all and it's just a single toggle them to run?
