I have a basic workflow that I built in SharePoint Designer that is waiting for a field to change on an InfoPath form and then updates a different field on the form and sends an
email to the next approver. It runs multiple times a day on several different InfoPath documents and has worked like a champ in SP2007 for the last year. Since we upgraded to SP2010 I have encountered an instance where on occasion the workflow
does not seem to recognize a field changing on the InfoPath form and just sits there waiting. After several hours or usually the next day, if I go back into the form and resave it, it wakes up the workflow and things start working again. This is
an intermittent problem and does not seem to follow any pattern.
It can hang on various stages of the workflow and on various field updates.
It appears that the workflow can simply not recognize the InfoPath form being updated, but then with a subsequent resave will start working again.
Sometime I can resave the form immediately and get it flowing again.
Other times I have to go back and resave the next day to get it going again.
