I have a list which users are able to submit new contacts to, but these contacts need approval before they can be accessed by everyone.
In order to achieve this, I went to :
List Settings ->
Versioning Settings :
As you can see, I selected
Create a version each time you edit an item in this list?, however whenever a list item is edited on this list (after being created and then approved), it goes back to being in a
Pending state and requires further approval.
This then causes an infinite chain reaction where, if an item is approved after an edit, this approval counts as editing the item and so the document goes back into
Is there a way of preventing this? Ie I would like to require approval on Create but not on Edit, and I also need another workflow which I created to run each time an item is edited.
