If I have a WF that request approval most of the time the user will respond from within the email and click on Approve or decline. Occasionally though people will bypass the email and approve the item from within the item page. When this happens then my WF never ends and I have an Orphan WF
How can I terminate or end this WF ?
Note within my WF I have
"Request Approval" - Sends email requesting aaproval
"Set Approval Status" - If someone selects Approve/Decline I use the "Set Approval Status" to update the SharePoint Approval status.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I suppose you could create a workflow that triggers if the approval status changes, and have it use the action "Terminate Workflow" and choose whichever workflow the approval one would have been, and then update the approval status. Would that work for you?
