We're using Sharepoint online. For some reason, when I set a field as value 'modified by' via a WF (in SPD) I get the value 'created by'. In many cases I know for sure that the user who modified the item isn't the one that created it. Does anyone encountered the same problem and know how to solve it?

  • can you add the screenshot for WF steps – Akshay Randive Aug 22 '17 at 17:11
  • I think the screenshot will not make it clear. I'll describe it here - sent an email to the manager > wait the field 'status' equal to 'Apporved' > set field 'approver name' as 'current item:modified by'. I made few tests and i noticed that the field 'approver name' set as the 'current item:created by' although I know for sure that the last one who modified the item is the manager. Does it help? – Yaniv Aug 24 '17 at 6:42
