I have an issue where a Worklof (Basically just a request/confirmation Workflow to read the approved document) puts the document into draft status.

I was tasked to fix this behaviour, the file should still be Approved without a new Version.

The Workflow has a Status field on the Document which gets updated as soon as the Workflow is attached to the Document, which changes its approval status.

How can I fix this behaviour?

The workflow was set to update its status.

Removing that checkmark in SP Designer causes an Element to not change at all so it won't get put into draft mode.
