I am using sharepoint 2013. I have created a reusable worklow. In this workflow I do some logic to publish approval stuff. After I approve the task I got some error that the item is not checked out for editing. So I turned of the option on the list where it is required to check out the item to edit the item. Now it works.
But I would like to add 2 extra actions in my workflow. I would like to start the workflow with "Check out current item" and finish the workflow with "Check in current item".
I found an action which is check in and check out, but I need to select a list and add some filter to select the current item.
I found this solution to implement the actions like I would like to have: check in and out the current item.
Isn't there a better solution to check in or out the current item in a sharepoint designer workflow?
