    Outcome Field Blank When Using ID from Assign To-Do Task Action

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE
    When using an Assign To-Do Task action, and storing the IDs into a collection, using those IDs to query the 'Outcome' field of the workflow task results in a blank field.
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    Add a 'Commit pending changes' immediately after the to-do task action.
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    It is necessary do this because the workflow updates the outcome column, not the user account. This causes the original value of the outcome (blank text) to be used when queried because of the way the workflow engine caches list item values. A commit action resets causes the workflow engine to get the latest value of the field.
