I'm new to SharePoint but have used some info I found on here/other sites to setup some workflows on a site that I own. The site is part of a larger site that I don't own.
I have one workflow that takes an item from the main list and copies it to an archive list then deletes it from the main list whenever the priority level is changed to "Archive". That has been working fine.
When the item gets to the Archive list, I had another workflow setup to add 14 days to the modified date and then pause until that date. Then it will delete the item. This way we don't build up too long of an archive list.
I would like to have the ability to change the priority level on an item in the archive list and cause it to copy back to the original list/remove it from the archive list (basically recover it from the archive list). The problem is that the delete workflow is in progress whenever the priority is changed so the recovery workflow won't start. How can I get around this so that items will still autodelete after 14 days and we can have the ability to recover an item if needed?
I've been using SPD to create the workflows.
