I'm creating a workflow in SharePoint 2010 Workflow Designer and need to check if a user is member of a sharepoint list before I can continue the workflow.

How can I do this (without use of VS)?

I know there is a Impersonation Step, but inside that I can only check if a user is has some permission levels and that is not what I want.

I simply need to check if a user is member of a given sharepoint group. If yes I'll continue, else I'll cancel the workflow

Thanks for any help!

Not without a custom activity.

There's such an activity on codeplex built for SP2007 but I would think this is easily updated for SP2010. Its part of a package that contains a variety of custom workflow activities.

This can be confirmed by looking at Microsoft's own list of conditions for SP2010.

Looking at the discussions about the 2007 package, it apparently can be installed into a 2010 environment without modification. – Neil Richards Jan 7 '11 at 12:46
