I have the odd occasion where workflows have run & processed correctly on a list or library but the status columns are not updated - they are still blank, as if the workflows haven't run even though they have.
99% of all workflow status columns update, just the odd occasion where they aren't.
Has anyone else come across this issue, is it a bug that is fixable?
No I have never run into that. Maybe to test it you could put a log just before the workflow ends logging the workflow status to make sure it did complete.
I have come across the same issue. I have had over 2000 workflows that show as 'Completed' and only 1 that has completed but has not updated the Workflow status.
When I look at the Workflow History of the workflow involved - this does not differ in any particular way from the history of all the workflows that show as 'Complete'.
Has anybody else come across this?
i have the same issue and its many workflow items now....
it occurs when i copy items from one library to another... and on other items it appears...look at the last item.
We do change the workflow status after every state machine stage to indicate the status with a custom status. The final status is "Processed". We have now more than 800 processed/completed workflows but about 500 of them are all now showing as blank status!! Any idea why!
