Approval Workflow not approving item - SharePoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have calendar content type that requires approval.  I created the workflow for the content type, and is seems to be triggering correctly.  The problem is, when I approve the item from within the workflow, the item itself is not being approved.  I have check the workflow setting and Enable Content Approval is checked.  I can also approve the items manually, so I believe it is not a permissions issue.  What am I missing?

  • Hi Ronkanter,

    Thanks for your post!

    Do you mean you want to set content approval for the calendar?

    If so, you just need to enable Content approval for calendar list, you do not need to create a workflow yourself. If you create a workflow yourself and then enable content approval, then you need to approval the content approval workflow in item itself and the custom approval created by you both.
