Getting SP Workflow to run on ‘Membership Review List’ when membership request comes in

Has anyone had any luck getting a workflow to run on NEW ITEM in the ‘Membership Review List’? I have a workflow running on EDIT ITEM when I modify a field (other than the Status) - but the NEW ITEM doesnt trigger the workflow…Just want an email to go to the ADMINS so Membership requests dont sit there without getting approved and ADMINS dont have to check the ‘Membership Review List’ constantly. Any suggestions? Thank you…s

Should work, I don’t remember having any issues with that before. However if you just want an email, instead of a workflow, just add an alert to the list.

Thanks…too simple. Just missed the obvious!!!
