Capture before and after values using SPD workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I'm looking to capture before and after values of a Status Column. The idea is to set a status date field to Current date when a status is changed. IF they revert the status back to old status, i want the old date in the date field. I can create a hidden column "OldStatus" that captures the Status when an item is created but the item is constantly modified as well using Access. So how do i capture status change when the item is modified?

  • Hi SharePointMadness,

    Instead of using workflow, I suggest we can better create a custom ItemUpdated2 event receiver to capture the before and after value when updating the list items.

    We can use BeforeProperties and AfterProperties in event receiver like below:

  • Thank you Jerry, I don't have that option to create event receivers because of work place security standards. The only option left is to use Workflows. If i figure out a way how to do it through workflows, i'll post it here.

  • Hi

    create a secondary list, as a mirror for the first one, in which you keep old value for each item
