I've setup up a standard OOTB (out of the box) approval workflow on a Pages library, in order to manage the approval of all pages created and updated. This operates as expected, and the users are mostly happy, execpt for one scenario:
Once a page has been submitted for approval, if the approver wants to edit the page, it stops the workflow (after prompting) which then requires the workflow to be started again. They would like it so the approver can edit and then approve, without
restarting the whole workflow process.
There is a setting in the approval workflow configuration of the 'Complete the Workflow' section in the 'Cancel this Workflow when the' area, and by unchecking the 'Document is changed' option, I believe this should enable approvers to edit the
page and then approve the page, without stopping the workflow However, the workflow appears to operate as expected, except the page does not automatically get approved. By looking in the workflow history, I can see the following error:
Post-completion activity performed. Approval status could not be updated.
I've tried this on two separate MOSS 2007 Enterprise farms, both are publishing sites and I'm running as a site collection administrator, both with the same results.
Is anyone else getting this, is this normal?!
Is there another way to approach this, without having to go
