I have two lists with an identical column and am trying to get update the parent when the child is changed. ** Before you tell me to simply use a lookup, it is a choice column which cannot be used in a lookup **
The workflow I created is not working and in fact, not even being recognized by the list at all. It's not erroring, it's not stopping, it's just NOT running at all. There isn't even a status column I can see when I try to modify the view. Just to make sure, I double checked that it was associated to the correct list and it is.
My workflow is set on the child list and intended to update the parent named "Master":
Set Variable:UpdateParent (string) to Current Item:ALC (string) then Update item in Master Tasks - Field:ALC - Variable:UpdateParent
Field ID Value: Current Item:TaskParentID
So essentially, it SHOULD be capturing the child's column status, setting it to the "UpdateParent" variable then going to the Master list and updating the same named column with what was set in the variable. And finding that list item using the IDs.
More Info - each column has 4 drop-down options.
I had this working at one point and I cant remember what I did to make it work. I am lost all over again! Please help. Thanks!
