I hope someone can help me with my issue I cant manage to solve. I am using SharePoint 2010 and SP Designer to create a workflow.
My questions is how can I create a workflow which starts upon status value in Status column changes in document library? I need two different workflows to be automatically started depending on selected value in the Status.
My status column has following options:
- Draft (no workflow required)
- For review (feedback workflow required)
For approval (approval workflow required)
Workflow to be started as following:
1st step : When user changes the value in Status to "For review" the Feedback workflow will start automatically and sent out the email notification to initiator and receiver with the instructions what to do and upon completion email notification with completion message will be sent to all.
2nd step: when user changes the value in Status to "For approval" the Approval workflow stats automatically and sent out the email notifications to initiator and receiver and again upon completion email will be sent out to initiator and receiver.
I have tried following but the workflow doesn’t work the following actions will run parallel:
If current item:Status equals For Review Start Feedback process on Current Item with these users
If current Item:Status equals For Approval Start Approval process on Current Item with these users
I have also tried Else if with the same structure and also separating the above ifs to different steps, non of it works and I am not sure how to create such a workflow which will automatically do what I need.
