If you can use this as a command workflow step it will work.

Please use the command as follows.

ksc_store [Token] = "",""

I have a request Type that is closed on submit (Workflow with Single Execution Step only) . Now once the request is submitted it is closed. After it is closed user will use "MAke Copy" functionality to take copy the of request such that some fields value should not be copied.

IS that if I use this COMMAND on the execution step then on copy token for which this command is used those fields value would not be copied?? right..pls confirm

Thanks for your response!!!

This command will Clear the value on submission . We dont want to clear on submission. we want to clear on taking copy of the request. put your thoughts!!

Hum... You can have additional fields such that the values are copied to the newly added field. In closed status show only the newly created fields that have the value.

Else there is a command to copy to new request

ksc_copy_request is the command I think, Give a try and let me know.

Or you can enable Notes History for these fields. So the actual value will be entered in the notes section.
