I am using SharePoint Online, where I have created a blog subsite, in the Blog SubSite Posts List i have configured Approval Workflow. Once the list item is approved, Approval status becomes approved (that is working fine)

But after sometime the approval status column become empty for that item. I am not sure why it is happening as I have configured approval workflow so many places but didn't see this kind of issue. Kindly suggest the solution.

  • Workflow is related to tasks..kindly check if someone is deleting task items from task list.. Feb 14, 2017 at 11:54
  • I have checked already, actually one more time i have got this issue but thought might be some another cause i am getting this but again i got the same. Feb 14, 2017 at 11:59

This may help .If you have more look up columns in your list then this kind of issues will come.


  • In Posts List there is only one LookUp Column is available by default '# Comments', except that i did not added any lookup column. actually this is not happening usually,sometime only i got this issue. In the same list there are almost 100 items and only for 1 or 2 items this is happening. Feb 14, 2017 at 12:46
