No More Spam from SharePoint Designer! (Infinite “On-change” loops are fixed)

Finally. After years of creating new workflows, running a test, only to have the CIO come into me and say "Hmm Brad I’ve received 200 emails in the last minute asking me to approve this task – could you look into it please?".
It appears that Microsoft have finally changed the logic so that an "On Change" workflow event cannot trigger itself by making changes to the current list item. This means that there’s a lot less test logic and column value validation that needs to go into a workflow, reducing the overall size and complexity of the workflow.

About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
