Default OOB Approval Workflow: The task was marked as completed

  Asked By: Celia    Date: Dec 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3512

I do not have access to the ULS logs and am having difficulty
determining why the default OOB Approval Workflow is not working
correctly. I keep getting an error that states: The task was marked
as completed but no approval or rejection choice was made. I
definately am making a choice...The document library indicates the
status as Error Occurred and the Workflow history indicates the same.
The email sends correctly without error and the alert for the new task
appears without error. It is only when the task is completed that the
above message appears.

When you are setting up the workflow  association one of the items is something
like modify content approval  status. If that is checked and content approval on
the list is not enabled you will get an error.

Thank you for the response, but can you be more specific.

When adding the OOB approval  workflow to a specific document  library the
last check box on the association forms deals with updating the approval
status of the library  based on the outcome of the workflow. What he is
saying is that if you have a library that is not set to require approval
and you check that box you will get the kind of error  you describe.
