Simplified Workflow Scheme error

Hello everyone,

I have an issue with modify/configure workflow on a project.
I tried to switch to 'Software Simplify Workflow management' and I received the follow error:

I created a new identical workflow with another name and i change the workflow which was assigned on the project, but the error is still here.

Do you any idea?

It's not the workflows, it's the workflow scheme.

When you simplify a workflow, it tries to create a new workflow, put it in a new workflow scheme and apply that scheme to the project.  It generates the names for the workflow and the workflow scheme from the name of the project.

But it can't create a new workflow and scheme if the names are already in use.

So, go to admin -> workflow schemes and find the one it is complaining about.  Rename or delete it.  Then try the simplify action again.

Thanks Nic, seems is working!

Have a nice day,
