There are 2 workflows(2010) WF1 and WF2 both set to trigger when item created/modified. And both the workflows does the same thing which is update a column. WF1 will set the column value to 1 and WF2 will set the column value to 2.
My assumption is that when I create a new item, both the WFs will get triggered and trigger each other continually. On the contrary, they both stopped after 5 instances of each workflows. When I added a 1 min pause at the end of both the workflows, they dont trigger each other. They run only once.
My question is why did the workflow stop after 5 instances each when there is no pause, and why they dont trigger each other when added a pause.
can someone please explain?
