Workflow Errors - Sending Email

  Asked By: Jody    Date: Dec 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8617

I have a workflow that basically checks a certain value on the creation of a
task, and if that is true, send an email to that group. Now the workflow does
do 23 comparisons, basically checks to see if the task created has 1 of the 23
possibilties, and then when the correct one is met - sends the email.

The problem is that it works for some, but other return with a 'error occured'
status. If I were to run the workflow again, it would be fine for all of them.
Any idea what the error maybe? Since it sometimes works fine, i almost feel as
if its processing ends up failing on one during times of too much inactivity on
the server.

I tried checking for logs, but there is nothing there of relevance at all. And
of course, the 'unknown error' isn't exactly descriptive enough for me to work

Are you using SharePoint Designer or are you creating your workflow  in Visual
Studio? If you are always comparing the same field, then it may be worth
writing your workflow in VS and using a case statement to simplify it.
