Workflow question

  Asked By: Vanraj    Date: Feb 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 638

I have a setup a workflow that works like this:

If priority is High and Status not equals Completed

Then Pause for 2 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes

Then Send non urgent, email to vendor email

I am pretty sure I know the answer, but after the pause does the conditional
get checked again or does it just do the action?

In other words, does it just send the email even if the status has changed
to completed in the 2 days it has been paused?

If it's waiting in the middle of a step, it will not go back and evaluate
the condition again; otherwise, if the status  hadn't changed, it would wait
another two days  and you'd never get that email  out :)
You'll need another step with another condition check if you want to test
after the pause.

The workflow  will not check the condition again. Possible solutions:

Pause and Then Check the Status

Check Status, Pause, Check Status Again
