We have this strange situation where the workflow status is missing from document library views. Here is the situation:
I have a Document Library with 3 OOTB approval workflows configured to start manually. Process is that user uploads a doc, start the first workflow, once it gets completed starts the second, and so forth.
Now if I check the All Documents view of this Document Library, I can see these three workflows have 3 columns and that shows the status of the workflow - say "In progress", "Completed" etc. Now our users who use this document library and workflow complains
that they cannot see these status of the workflow after some days. If a workflow is completed and status shows completed there, but after some days that column is blank. I've checked the modified data for the documents and this issue according to the user
happens to documents that was uploaded 2 weeks back too, which means this doesn't happen to old document only. This document library has Major and Minor versioning enabled.
Why does this happen, does SharePoint remove data for completed workflows?
I checked the document's workflow page and its empty; nothing under running workflows and nothing under completed workflows.
In Doc Library settings - Workflow settings I could not find an option View Workflow reports. That page has the following details:
