Calendar Workflow

  Asked By: Pavani    Date: May 31    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 8569


I am creating a workflow on a Calendar list in 2010 using SPD.
This workflow needs to send an email to a list of users when the text in any of 3 Outcome fields(outcome, outcome summary & outcome details) changes.

I tried to follow an article on the internet and created hidden columns for each of the required fields. I compare the values in the workflow and if they are not equal, then i send the email.

2 issues i am facing:

#1. workflow doesn't start until the item is Approved. This defeats the whole purpose of editing an item and having to view the changes in email without having to approve.

#2. workflow fires even if the outcome fields are not
changed. This is annoying to the user as any small
change, they start receiving an email.

I am not sure what is causing this issue. I have tested changing an event's outcome field specifically and i end up with 2 emails.

Any ideas or suggestions? Please respond.
