I'm creating a workflow in SharePoint Designer 2010 to run on SharePoint 2010. It's designed to implement a document approval procedure. Step 1 is to initialise some workflow variables. Step 2 is 'Wait for Approval Status not equal Draft',
to wait for any edits to finish. Step 3 is send an email to the first approver. Step 4 is 'Wait for Approval Status not equal Pending', which fails with 'An error has occurred in <workflow name> immediately. I've tried putting 5 minute
pauses in prior to the Wait for Approval Status' to no avail.
Both the document creator and the SHAREPOINT\System account have full rights in the document library concerned. The workflow starts automatically if a document is either created or changed.
