Error:The workflow could not update the item

If you are executing workflow and getting error "The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the items require a different type of information".Make sure that the Item on which workflow is running should not be locked by any other process.We had same problem, while submitting the Infopath form in the document library and workflow initiated on the form and trying to update the same item.

To manage this error, you can use the delay activity to delay the execution of the workflow after submitting the form.

  1. Thanks, so easy, but took me some time to figure out hehe. Guess some updates are async and takes some time.
