How do you trigger a mass update using a workflow?

Is it possible to trigger a  saved mass update using a workflow?

 

In this case, the mass update is to mark invoices as ‘sent.’ (a custom check box)

I want this mass update to occur once another mass update is completed (one sending bulk invoices via email)

Is this something that can be done with a workflow?

Or does it need a script?

Also, related to this. is there a way to lock invoices for editing before an invoice is sent via a mass update?

Both SuiteScript and Suiteflow have no way to trigger a saved massed update. Both have their own mechanisms for processing groups of records. For SuiteScript, that is a map/reduce script or scheduled script. For SuiteFlow, there are scheduled workflows.
