I have a reusable workflow that is being used to approve a document content type (named SWIS). When a document is submitted for approval it is created double the normal number of approval tasks. There are 3 approvers, each person needs to approve the document. However each approver is being assigned 2 tasks for a single document:
Here are the workflow settings, accessed via the Document Library settings.
When I open this document library with SP Designer, I find that the Start Options here are different. I'm also a little puzzled by having the Start Options in two places - the workflow itself appears to have different Start Options. Could this be causing the duplicate approval tasks?
So, then we come to the next strange issue, a weird error message. I had disabled all Start Options on the workflow itself (in SPD, I selected Workflows>Reusable Workflow>SWIS Doc Approval workflow) then I disabled all Start Options. I tried to Publish the changes and I saw this error!
I've included two issues in this Question, but they do seem to be linked to each other, as far as I can tell. I'd be grateful for any pointers anyone can give or any troubleshooting suggestions.
