Ok, I've searched everywhere and have gotten mixed information about whether this is possible with standard Sharepoint functions. I new at Sharepoint, but I'm doing this to help out the department which is short of help right now.
Here's what I'm intending to do - We need a small ticketing system to track software requests. I created a basic list that accomplishes this fine. I created another list with criteria that software must meet in order to be approved called software
evaluations. I made a "choice" column called approval status in both lists that have the following options: Approved, Pending, Rejected. I'd like the softwarerequests.approvalstatus to mirror whatever the softwareevaluations.approvalstatus
column value is.
I created a workflow using SPD and it's seemingly easy to use. I attached it to the softwarevaluations list and set the following as the matching criteria:
if softwareevaluations.approvalstatus = "approved" then softwarerequests.approvalstatus = "approved".
It mentions that the values aren't unique, but I accept anyway. It doesn't do anything and I'm thinking it might be because it doesn't know what "issue" to reference.
I feel I'm all over the place right now, so it might be easier if someone just asks me what you need to know to help.
