I have a workflow that runs through several department tasks at once, then forwards to the facility manager when done. Several times (not always) when running this workflow, the tasks complete, but it does not continue on like it should. See the screenshot attached. The workflow size is 884k, which I know they say if it goes over 1MB then there may be issues.
Is there anyway I can force this WF along? It's frustrating that this keeps happening.
The workflow status just shows "Running." I attached the screenshot requested. it's two images so don't get tripped up by the multiple emails
hm, it looks like outer parallel action did not get notified by inner ones that all of them already finished.
what's the reason to nest parallel action? why can you simply have 6 prallel branches within one parallel action?
My original workflow was set up that way, and I was running into the same issue. I thought maybe it was too many actions for one parallel action, so I broke it up into several. Again, it works sometimes, which was better than never working with everything under one parallel action.
just a guess - have you tried commit/pause after update item action above parallel action to rule out some batching issues?
I guess that is a possibility. I have 7 of these workflows that go to different users in different facilities. This one seems to be the only one that gives me issues but it's the largest one out of them all. I wish there was a way for me to force this WF to the next step somehow.
I affraid you will not be able to advance already stuck workflow.
or maybe, if you restarted timer (and/or other) SP's services, its progress might be reexamined and continued.
