I have created a custom SharePoint list called "Issue Tracker" and enabled content approval in versioning settings. When I enabled that, it added approval columns automatically. I have created a workflow using SharePoint designer wherein whenever a user uploads a document by entering the Approver name, a task is assigned to the approver. When the task is approved, I am not able to set in SharePoint designer to change the status to Approved. Please find the below screenshots of my list and workflow.

To update moderation status we can use SPD Workflow List Action Set Content Approval status to Approved.

You can refer below screenshot enter image description here

  • Hi Bharat, I tried but it's not changing the approval status when the task outcome is approved. If I remove your red box, then it's triggering an email and the workflow status etc. – rva.raghav Jun 25 '18 at 4:33
  • Did you publish workflow using full control user? If it's not trigger then there must me some issue to update Moderation status. could you please find exception and tried to resolve it. – Bharat Khunti Jun 25 '18 at 4:40
  • Bharat, I am the administrator and so I have full access. What do you mean by moderation status? To explain clearly, I have enabled the "Require content approval for submitted items?" in versioning which added the Approval columns. The flow is able to trigger only till the creation of task. – rva.raghav Jun 25 '18 at 6:30
  • moderation status is Approval status. Can you send error that occur after task completed? – Bharat Khunti Jun 25 '18 at 7:19
  • Hi Bharat, there's no error but the workflow is working only until the creation of task. Can I contact you in skype or some other ways? Thanks – rva.raghav Jun 25 '18 at 8:01
