System Account in approval workflow

Dec 10, 2012 at 12:22 PM

Hi

The workflow now starts automatically, but using an approval workflow created in SPD shows System Account in the emails and not the initiator of the workflow. Is there a revised version ?

Thanks

Did you ever figure out a workaround for this? We are running into the same thing and it is killing our workflow processes.

 

Thanks

Hi

I had to change all the instances where I found initiator to creator within the approver email. Not great solution but worked. Sytem account will still appear in the Workflow history though, think that parts normal. Hope it helps.
