Hello Experts,


I have business requirement for travel request approval.

User submit travel request it will go to his manager for approval. if he approve it will go to next approver.

in case of rejection at any level it will end the workflow. 

we have to manage the permission in between the entire workflow cycle.

requester (user) once submit the list item should have read access to the list item and the next approver should have contribute right to approve the request.

as approve or reject happen i am setting a value to field to know the workflow status, however since requester has read permission it giving error

"The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information.”"


so in this case what should be approach to update field for the current item.

we dont have permission to create any service account and adding or removing permission again would be cumbersome as this will be at multiple places


i have attached screenshot for the same.


Any help will be highly appreciated.
