I copied the approval workflow available. After completing the approval, I want one field related with the item that was approved to be updated.

I tried different ways but nothing works.

Should I include this action inside the approval step or in a separate step?

My last step is the following:

Update item in current item
List: current item

Set the field: Title
To this value: Invoice Peru: Approval Status Yes

Perhaps have that process run on its own workflow. Create a workflow that will look for when the first is Complete, you should have a column in the corresponding library of the workflow that gives you the workflow state for that Item. Use that column as a trigger for the new workflow and then use "set field in current item" to complete the process.


It would be better if you include that step in approval workflow itself.

You can use sharepoint designer to add this step to your workflow.
