So I created a custom list and infopath form and published it to SharePoint. Then from that page I added a workflow and chose the globally reusable Approval workflow. Now I'm trying to edit the workflow in designer, but when I do a lookup for values in Current Item, it isn't showing any fields from the custom form I created.

Am I missing something big here? Why are my list fields not available in Current Item when the workflow should be associated?

You need to promote the fields when publishing your infopath form

  • I do not understand how to do this. I've searched online for several hours for how to promote a field, all to no avail.
