2371760 - Goal Plan state doesn't change automatically when the form is auto routed


Goal Plan state change is not working when the form is auto routed on due date.

There are 3 states in the Goal plan template.

1. Open
2. pending for Approval.
3. Locked.

Route map:- Employee Review --> Manager Approval --> Completed.

In the Employee Review step,the Goal plan state will be "Open". Manager Approval step the goal plan state is " Pending Approval" and when the form completes,the goal plan state will be " Locked". It is working fine in the normal flow. But when the form is  "AUTO ROUTED" from Manager Approval to Complete, the goal plan state is not changed to "locked,the goal is still in "Pending Approval.
