Hi Chris, I would imagine that your note in the drawing is linked to custom property called "State" or similar.
When the file is moving through the EPDM workflow, you probably have a transition action set to set a variable for the workflow state, this gets written to the file's data card, and consequently to the custom property, hence it shows up in the drawing.
However, when the file is first checked in, there is no transition it goes through, so no variables are set, and no custom properties are updated.
You could achieve this by adding a couple of automatic transitions, one of which writes the state to the file's datacard and then returns back to the WIP state.
See the attached CEX file for an example workflow.
Hope it helps.

You are correct. There was an automatic transition at the beginning already, but no Action telling it to set the state. I simply added that action and it works now. Thanks very much
