Workflow status longevity?

Jump to solution

Nintex creates a column in a list to display the status of a workflow.  That status drops off after a time. Does anyone know what that timeframe is and if it can be modified?

Hi David,

I've only ever seen that column disappear, when SP realizes there are too many columns in the list.

Do you mean the status value becomes blank after the workflow exits? That would perhaps make sense.

You are right, Colin.  I should have been more specific.  The value in the workflow column disappears after a while.  For instance I have a column that Nintex created in a list called Approval Workflow.  Once the workflow completes, the value of that column is "Approved" or  "Rejected".  After a while that "Approved" or "Rejected" text goes away.  What causes the text in the column to disappear?

hi David,

I believe that it because of SharePoint workflow auto cleanup job. Default is cleanup after 60 days. I think it's configurable.

Hope that helps.
