Unable to find the automatically update the workflow status checkbox

    Question

  • Working in SPD 2013 developing a SP 2010 Content Type Approval WF for Publish Global type of deployment.

    I am having trouble with the Approval Status changing automatically during my Workflow.  Once an item is Approved the Approval Status changes to Draft.

    From what I am reading I need to uncheck "automatically update the workflow status" but I cannot find that anywhere in the UI for this WF.

  • Hi,

    According to your post, my understanding is that you were unable to find the automatically update the workflow status checkbox.

    If you create workflow using SharePoint Designer 2013,

    In SharePoint 2010 Platform workflow, you need to uncheck the checkbox as below:

  • This should not have been marked as answered.  The checkbox does not exist in the UI for the workflow I am working on.
