I am trying to copy workflow status into a new column of type ' Hyperlink ', and redirect it to my custom page along with item ID. This is what i tried,

 

  • Action - Build String, 

                     

 

As my new column is hyperlink, I am setting the URL to custom page in 'Build String'. Where as in the description I want to show text same as 'Workflow Status' column, to make it easy for users.

 

  • Action - Update List Column,                      

                     

 

My list column config,

 

                      

                            

This is what I am trying to do in the workflow,

 

                                         

Don't get confused here in first image, I am building the string for the first time and storing it into a workflow variable and using 'Update List Item' action whenever necessary.

 

The second image is what I am trying before workflow ends, even I tried without 'Build String' action , no luck. 'Build String & Update Item' config action is same as above.

 

I am not sure, where I am doing wrong. Below is my result in the list, everything works well first time, but the column remains unchanged.

                              

Can someone please help ?
