CQWP filter based on workflow status. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got a doc library which filter with a content query web part. I need to filter and only show documents that are approved.

    I assumed I would just pick the 'Approval' column from with in the CQWP and 'filter = 16' (like you can do within the document library its self).

    Initially I couldnt find a column called 'Approval' I only had Approval Status', which I think relates to Content Approval - that I'm not using.

    Then I read that the CQWP only displays site columns, so I created a site column named 'Approval', ths showed up in the CQWP but I still cant filter based on the workflow approval status.

    Any Ideas?

  • Hi nick9one1,

    Yes, the CQWP only filter on site columns. Do you filter on only one document library list? If it's, you needn’t use CQWP, you can just use a general filter web part or filter section under all document-> Modify this view, then filter based on the column of your workflow name.

    If it’s not the issue, please provide more information about how you create the workflow.

    Best Regards.
