Strange SharePoint Designer Workflow Issue

  Asked By: Franklin    Date: Jan 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1113

I have a strange issue going on with one of my Sharepoint Designer

I have a simple workflow that Starts when an item is created and simply
updates a field with a value from another field. Workflow is 1 action.

The workflow takes along time to process with status of "in process".
During this time, the list item cannot be edited. I receive a Save
Conflict error. In addition, if I refreah a view, it seems to kick of
the workflow again....some times on multiple list items.....

If I set the same workflow to start when a new item is created, it
works correctly, but on change it takes forver and seems to start on
page reload. Any ideas?

Sorry, the workflow  works correctly  and in timely manner when
workflow is set  to run when items  are created. However doesnt work
correctly and in timely manner when workflow is set to run when items
are changed/modified.
