I am designing a workflow in sharepoint designer to manage the approval process for an infopath form. I am using sharepoint server 2007. My sharepoint site already has a form library dedicated to the approval form and I have already attached my workflow to the form library. My problem is that when I try to add a second step to my custom workflow, I always get the error "failed on start (retrying)" in the workflow status column of the form library when I initiate a workflow on a form. If I use only one step in my workflow, however, I get no errors. So does anyone know why adding multiple steps to a workflow would cause this error? This is super frustrating. Thanks.
Note: I would post a screenshot, but I just joined stack overflow. So I cannot post images yet :/
Edit: My workflow is as follows:
- Can be started manually or automatically by creation of an item
Actions:(all actions in step 1 executed in parallel)
Send an email to several sharepoint groups
Email the creator of the item
set a field in the current item (called "Workflow Status") to the number 1
Same task is assigned to several sharepoint groups (same groups a referenced in the first action).
- If field in current item equals "yes"
- Set a field in the current (called "Workflow Satus") to the number 5
- Else if field in current item equals "no"
Set a field in the current (called "Workflow Satus") to the number 0
Assign task to the creator of the item.
