I have a Document Library with the following Settings: -
Require content approval for submitted items= Yes Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited=No
I have a SPD approval workflow acting on a document library. Everything works but I am now required that the user is forced to check-out the document.
I now set the document library to :
Require content approval for submitted items= Yes Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited=Yes
The workflow fails due to requiring the document to be checked-out. So I add the following actions within the workflow
'Checkout item in current item' and 'Set Content Approval status to Approved' Actions in the workflow
Now workflow checks out document, but a different error occurs. workflow history shows :User Id System Account, Event type - Error
The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information.
I've looked for soltions but cant find any answers. Any help appreciated, using 2010 with latest CU.
I've added actions to 'When a Task Completes'
