I have a requirement which states "When a document is being uploaded to the document library, an email should be sent for approval". I'm using a SharePoint Designer workflow for this. I also need to have the publishing feature on the document library.

Presently what is happening, when I add a document to document library, the workflow is triggered and the e-mail is sent and workflow is getting approved. But later when I try to publish, again the workflow is getting started. How can I prevent this? Or am I using the wrong approach?

  • Can you explain what you mean by publish? This word can have several meanings for SharePoint people and I would like to be certin we are talking about the same thing. – Robert Kaucher Mar 9 '12 at 13:19

  • You may have the workflow set to if anything changes about any of the pages and it may not be just an approval workflow. – Mike Mar 9 '12 at 19:41
