SP Designer Workflow

  Asked By: Aiesha    Date: Jan 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2906

I have a straight forward workflow with step 1 - I have also checked
auto start when new item is created and if changes occur.

I received the new request created email - I then have step 2 - if the
status field changes I have email being sent to reflect the change -
when I completed the item it sent me a new request has been created and
also email that the request is completed. I really should only receive
the completed email Why would I get new request email in step 2.

You get two emails because one is being sent from the workflow  that
started when the item  was created, and is still running because its now
step 2 of that original workflow. But you also get an email  because the
item has changed. You now have two separate workflow instances running
on the same item.

I have combined all into the Step 1 and its working
as it should. I noticed when I add the date completed  into the body
of the workflow  email it is add the time and I really don't want the
time just the date - can I add @date(insert field  code)...I will give
this a try....
