Not quite sure I understand the difference between terminating a WF and Ending a Workflow. If I use a set condition and if it is "NO" for the result I want the workflow to end I assume ? However, I don't understand the distinction.
End workflow: Ends the workflow it appears in. (current) Terminate workflow: Ends other workflows on current item.
Hi Frederick...can you give me an example of when you would want to Terminate a workflow...thx
Terminate:If you have a master workflow that has started some other sub workflows on the same item, and you reach a condition where all or some of the sub workflows needs to be terminated. Or when you need to restart the whole process from beginning again.
End:This I mostly use for error handling. During workflows that run for an extended period of time, error will happen. During the workflow I check if the required data is present, else I send an alert email en ends the workflow I a controlled manner.
Typical errors:Approvers left the company. Lookup in config list returns nothing.
