Task modified in workflow sets all tasks as completed

We are trying to automate the creation and completion of tasks as a way to guide our CRM users through our lead management and sales process. The first Workflow creates a task called “Contact and Qualify Lead.” It is then followed by another workflow which is a task that looks for a specific value in the Lead status dropdown, and if this value is selected, the process is suppose to do the following:

  1. Send an email to the Assigned to person explaining what to do next.
  2. Create a new task to continue down the lead management and sales funnel.
  3. Mark the “Contact and Qualify Lead” task as Completed.

The problem we are having is that when step 3 above fires, and all tasks related to the lead get marked as Completed. This includes the task created in Step 2 above and any other “manual” tasks we may have created for the lead. The only task that should be marked completed is the “Contact and Qualify Lead.”

We’ve tried a bunch of variations but still no success. Can anyone shed some light on how to accomplish what should be a simple function.


the way the Workflow module works at the moment, you can’t achieve this, I think that for that particularly flow you can write a logic hook but is not a simple function as you requested

best regards

Thanks Mike. Will see if we can put the logic hook together to make this work.

We got it done via logic hook. Thanks again!
