I have a List using a customized Workflow created in SharePoint Designer 2013.

One of the conditions is Current Item: Not Equal to Yes.

I am reusing WF in another site collection, however, I'm not able to create recreate this.

I can't leave the CUrrent Item blank which the drop-down lists the fields of the List. When I click ok, it wouldn't allow me to save the condition.

Is there a way to create this condition without using a Field Name?


Is there a way to create this condition without using a Field Name? No, It's impossible to create a condition from the current item without using a field from source.

To investigate your issue in your old workflow, try to

  • Click on Current Item: to check from where it built the condition.
  • Click on the Check errors button to show if there is an error in your old workflow.
  • Make sure that the condition is not written manually as shown below.

  • Hello Mohamed El-Qassas, the second image is exactly what the old one looks like. So someone probably wrote this condition manually? Is there any reason why or purpose for this method? – adams-j May 16 '20 at 0:58
  • exactly, I wrote it manually and In my opinion, there is no purpose for this method, even if he tried to do condition outside the current item he should use a variable, but in this case, it will show variable: current item otherwise you can't use the current item without specifying the field name! hope it helps! – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP May 16 '20 at 1:01
