Task is currently locked by a running workflow

  Asked By: Tarang    Date: Nov 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4818

I've recently started seeing this in one of my workflows. Created in SPD, it
assigns 3 tasks to people. The first person to try to complete their task can
do so with no issue. The remaing two get the error:

"This task is currently locked by a running workflow and cannot be edited. "

This was working fine up until a couple of days ago.

Has anyone come across this? I can't see anything untoward in the logs.

Have you checked the workflow  history to see if there are any odd events
reported there?

There's nothing odd in the history, but then I wouldn't expect to see
aything logged back to the history until all 3 tasks  have been completed as
the workflow  will be 'asleep' (won't it?)

I have seen this happen numerous times. You cannot do anything except wait for
the workflow task  to actually complete. If it doesn't complete  in a day or two,
basically the timer should reset sometime and kickoff the completion of the
task, then I would suggest cancelling the workflow  and restarting it again.
