Modified by is always the initiator, is there a work around to this?

Jump to solution

I have an Approval workflow which I must have different Initiator and Author (which is the Modified by), but as the Workflow changes the item the Modified by field gets the initiator as the Modified by, instead of getting the last one that has updated the document...

Is there any workaround to get the last Modified by (before initialisation)?

I've found the problem! When I was changing the status of the workflow it was somehow changing the item itself so that the Modified By turn to be the Initiator instead staying the same.

In order to solve this I've created a variable called 'Author' and before everything I set it to be the {Current Item:Modified By}, this way I was able to get the last modified by.
