I have share point list which receives the values from page (using Web services) on the list I have created an 3 state Workflow (By choosing List -> Workflow setting -> configure to run on ITEM, from the top ribbon in the browser) choosing (Start this workflow when a new item is created.) and in "Specify what you want to happen when a workflow is initiated:" I have checked "Send e-mail message", rest everything is disabled.

Everything work fine, just that it send the notification mail twice, which is confusing the stockholder with single to 2 records insertion.

I tried many options but no luck so far.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Have you tried getting the workflow to pause for 1 minute before it sends the e-mail? I don't know much about your specific example but I had a Designer e-mail that would send twice but by adding a pause, it only sent once.
