Hello Expert,

I have SharePoint designer workflow which is updating list item on event of InfoPath submit button.  
Some users request on infopath submission is giving error in workflow. Error: Document Checked out.Please note, My InfoPath is client application.

I think, InfoPath form is not  properly close after submission for some users. Because of that reason, Workflow initiated before closing the application and giving error "Document Checked out".

Can you please tell any work around for this issue?

Thanks for your help.

First add a new step to your workflow, move it up to make it the first step.  Add an action that Waits for the document to not be checked out.

If that does not resolve your issue that it's not a matter of the SharePoint checkout, but a hidden checkout behind the scenes where SharePoint talks to Microsoft Office.  In that case you need to write a custom workflow action that waits for the "SPCheckOutStatus" to equal None (for MOSS 2007;  SP 2010 I believe the property is just CheckOutStatus").  Give the first paragraph a try and let me know if that works.  If not, I can help you create this custom activity.
