Problem with Workflows created from Sharepoint designer

  Asked By: Nicole    Date: Jan 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1744

We have workflows created from Sharepoint designer. The workflow has
if and else conditions. During the tasks execution, The workflow
executes both if and else between 20-30 minutes of time.

Below is the sample outcome log of workflow.

11/19/2007 11:16 AM Comment Started Phase 3 Forms
11/19/2007 11:16 AM Comment Forms Started
11/19/2007 11:47 AM Workflow Completed System Account
Phase 3 Status equals Forms Not Started

The above log messages are output of workflow execution. Started
Phase 3 Forms and Forms started are part of if conditions and Phase 3
status equals forms not started is part of else conditions.

All log messages found in the same workflow execution.

I don't understand what went wrong here.

Can you give more info on the workflow  itself? What is it doing? Parameters,
variables, conditions, etc?

Here is more info about the workflow. This workflow  updates Status

If Phase III status  equals "Forms not started"
Log "Started Phase 3 Forms" to the workflow list
Log "Forms started" to the workflow list
Set Phase III Status to "Forms Started"
Log "Phase 3 Status equals Forms Not Started" to the workflow list

This workflow fires whenever an item is changed in the associated
list and checks for Phase III Status.

I set Phase III Status to Forms not started.

As of given conditions workflow output  was

"Started Phase 3 Forms" and "Forms Started" and set Phase III status
to "Forms started".

but after 30-40 minutes
The status of workflow changed to completed  and shows output
as "Phase 3 Status equals Forms Not Started".
