Column Added to Sharepoint list does not appear in Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All - Hope you'll be able to assist with this one.

    I've created a SP site, created a list with a few columns and had to create a workflow to trigger a customized Autonumber. And for this, I've created a few calculated columns as well. But now one of the calculated columns is showing as "simple text". Has anyone ever seen this happen? Is there any way I can make this column type changed to "calculated" again?

    I've tried creating a new column and would get rid of that other one, but when I tried updating the workflow, this new column did not show up on the Field list option. Does anyone know what I can do to make this new column available in the workflow?

  • You cannot change column type after it is created.

    As for the new column doesn't show up, I think you need to refresh the list or create a new list workflow for that.
