Misc WorkFlow Extension and subtasks

Hi ,

I have a task and a subtask. Task and subtask both have a datetime field which gets populated automatically with the %%CURRENTDATETIME%% values using the create function in the work flow associated to both tasks and subtasks. This works nicely for Tasks. But when i create a subtask it is unable to set the current date time value to that custom field and it fails with an error saying unable to update.

Please let me know how to resolve this issue.

Thanks

Saran

thanks for your help. I found out the reason for this - These custom fields were not added to sub task issue type. Adding them resolved the issue.

It should just work fine, although I admit I haven't tried it on subtasks. Can you check the order of the post function and make sure it is the same on both workflows?
