Does SharePoint contain the date when a workflow ends? I need to add the completion date of a workflow once the approval workflow has finish and has been approved.





Approval Workflow

Step 2 is the new addition

  • I would move the Set End Date to Today right to the end of the workflow, inside the else branch, just before "Set workflow status to Approved" – MdMazzotti Jan 29 '14 at 14:54

I would do something like this:

  • Thanks I'm a bit of a workflow novice. I think I've edited it correctly. I didn't have Approval Date as an option so I created a new date column for the document library. I've screen grabbed the workflow, would you be able to check it? – Mike Blair Jan 29 '14 at 14:41
  • Yep sorry, forgot to mention you would have to add a new date column to your library. – MdMazzotti Jan 29 '14 at 14:53
  • I've ran the workflow and I get this error. The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information. The workflow operation failed because the action requires the document to be checked out. – – Mike Blair Jan 31 '14 at 8:14
  • Do I need to check out the doc as a part of the workflow? – Mike Blair Jan 31 '14 at 8:14
