Hi 

 

I am very new at working with sharepoint and workflows.

But could someone point out for me what I am doing wrong when my "submit" button skips to the first stage in the next phase, and does not go to the next stage in the current phase?

 

I have created a workflow that looks like this:

0- Start at Stage 1

1- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 2.1

2- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 2.2

3- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 3.1

4- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 3.2

5- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 4

But when I submit a project in stage 2.1, it jumps to the next stage, 3.1. And does not include 2.2.

 

Hopefully someone out there can correct my flow.

 

All the best, Marin

@Marinpetersen Clearly you have used "2" two times

2- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 2.2

2- When a project is submitted, go to: stage 3.1

 

So it can go to 3.1 directly

Hi @SinhaKislay ,

Sorry I think this is just a typo on my side, I have corrected it now in the conversation.
I have included a picture of the workflow, it goes from stade 2.1 to 2.2, and from 2.2 to 3.1.

But thank you for the correction in the text.

Solution

Of course there was a logical reason for this, I just had to be patient and publish the workflow, wait for a while and then restart the workflow.

 

I noticed when starting a new project.

 

Best regards, Worflow newbie.
