The selected workflow is already running on this list item

Hi All,

I've recently transitioned into a workflow developer role and I'm quite still new and learning the Ins and Outs of creating workflows. Would anyone know if it's possible to run the a workflow on a document that's already running that same workflow? If not, is there a workaround it or should I just break out my workflow?

Re: The selected workflow is already running on this list item

Hi Sara,

You cant have the same workflow running twice on the same item, if you republish the workflow then a new instance of the workflow can be run on the same item, but republishing means that its a different workflow..

I believe you should be designing your workflow to end after its finished its job so that it can be started again if the need arises.
