Here's a strange problem I can not explain. I had a workflow set up that was working fine for a few weeks and suddenly stopped working, and the point it is failing is not making any sense.
Here's a breakdown of the process.
When an Item is created on the list it starts the workflow.
- Request Approval (8 Recipients 3 Needs to approve)
- If Approved Update a Status field on the list item
- Request Approval (Different audience, 11 Recipients First Vote Applies)
- Remainder of workflow ....
As mentioned earlier this worked fine for a few weeks then suddenly workflows started failing. So we started the hunt, I then found that the Tasks created on the Second approval are created in a 'completed' state, so when a recipient attempts to approve they can't as the item is completed, and the workflow fails.
So I though maybe there is a timing issue here, I then added a delay before the second approval. First run through the workflow it fails again but this time on the delay not the second approval.
Any ideas of suggestions here please ?
