Disclaimer: I don't know if there is a simpler way to do that. I would do the following: create an hidden list have the workflow post "task" items to the list. Have the task contain all the info you need to actually perform the task (sending the mail) use a timer job with daily schedule to process all the tasks in batch. After you are done delete the task ...

This question resembles this other one: Call HTTP Web Service: Unauthorized Ideally, you should publish the code as a web service into SharePoint instead of an Application page (as that is pretty much the same thing without the proper infrastructure). Also, make sure you set the Header Dictionary into the proper property. SharePoint Designer misleads you ...

You can invoke following REST call from the Workflow http://your_sp_site.sharepoint.com/_api/web/siteusers and get the user in question (using filter) and get the PrincipalId into a variable. And use it as part of the actual REST call. http://siteurl/_api/web/siteusers?$select=Id,Title&$filter=substringof('\username', Title)

Unfortunatelly the error is generic. It indicates that something went wrong with your workflow. Since you are using SPD there is no way to debug your WF. Your best bet is to fire up Fiddler and inspect which request is failing. Then try to map failed request to activity within WF. I had exactly the same error today and I have traced it to web service call ...

The JQuery version of the REST calls are listed below. // Change placeholder values before you ...

Check you are not using System Account for testing. Workflow will never start automatically with system account. Check the options Start workflow automatically when an item is created or changed from Workflow Start Options.

Each time a new workflow is published within SPD, a new instance is added. What this means is that each time a workflow is published, it overwrites a previous version but the previous versions are not removed. If an administrator were to check the active workflows, they'd see a history that looks like this. This is to allow any items that still have ...

Have you tried putting your workflow in Impersonation step. Impersonation step- here workflow will run on its publishers account. I am not sure of similarity between App step and impersonation step, in case they are same then change the user who publishes the workflow. I had issues with impersonation step, when I was publishing it with site collection ...

If this is a SharePoint 2013 workflow you may be able to build a timer on the workflow by utilizing the loop functionality. This is described in another stackexchange post at Trigger workflow daily. Then you could just do your check weekly and if the task still shows as incomplete fire off the reminder email. You could improve upon it even further by saying ...
