Calendar with Workflows / Problem / multiple workflows on same item at same time, but different user


  • Hi everyone,

    I have a problem with the behavior of the Sharpoint2013 workflows.

    I have created a calender with an "Entry"-Workflow which checks maximum people, correct company and such things.

    The workflow works fine and does what it should do.

    BUT my error situation:

    1. User 1 starts the "Entry"-Workflow for an event

    2. User 2 starts the workflow for the same event, during the workflow of User 1 is still running.

    2.a. workflow of User 2 will be cancelled with Initiator = "Anonymous"

    My questions are:

    1. Is there a setting that the workflow of User 2 will be set to a queue and wait until the workflow of User 1 is finished?

    1.a. Or at least that the initiator will set to the user ID?

    i appreciate any help that i can get.
