I have a SPD 2010 workflow that needs to do two consecutive updates to a list.
The updates a to different items in the list.
The workflow does the first update to the list but unless I add a 1 minute pause after the first update, it fails to do the socond update.
The main problem is that althought the pause is set for 1 minute, it can take as much as five minutes before the second update, I believe this is due to the Timer Job running every 5 minutes.
Is there any way I can decrease the timer job so that it runs at a shorter interval?
Will that cause any problems with the rest of the site?
I have changed to 1 minute and now the longest it takes to complete is 1 minute and 20 seconds more or less.
I still don't understand why I must place a pause between the updates, I cant find any info on the web about it. Surelly SPD should be able to handle consecutive updates to the same list if the items updated are on different rows.
