Hi

I have setup a workflow that I start manually in SharePoint that simply changes the status of a column in an item.

I have a problem with the first approval takes roughly 50 seconds to start, but after that they are all quick.

Is there any way to improve this startup time?

This is just a result of the necessary services being initialized. There's no great way to avoid this.

You could try a warm up script, but in general they're best avoided;

Not necessarily. I'd say calling a page that displayed a workflow status might do it.
