After more research, it seems to be that Wait only performs a check when an item is edited. Approval workflow completion does not edit an item; therefore, the check is never performed. To circumvent this, I negated the original approval workflow and built a custom workflow that included an approval workflow (see the first line of Step 1 below). One ...

I would probably make it an on change workflow. I would also introduce a flag column into the list. The workflow would then go like this: If probe long term hold equals 16 and flag column equals No Email.. Start approval... Update Current item set flag equal to Yes Make sense?

Alright, so finally I have an answer. Let me explain the mistake I had made, so you don't do the same thing. When you call the action "Start Approval Process", a variable called CancelonRejection is added to the workflow context variables. This was known. When you "Change the behavior of a single task" and scroll down to the step "When a Task Completes". ...

In your workflow, you would us an if/else branch to build a dynamic string (using the set workflow variable action) based on some condition. The key is to output the strings to the same variable. Then in your email body, you insert this variable into the body. Then when an item is submitted, based on the list metadata, it selects the appropriate string and ...

I don't think a workflow is going to get you there, they are pretty bad at aggregating information. I believe you want a digest alert on the list that runs daily. This will pull all the posts together into one email and send that off to whomever you specify.

SharePoint Designer workflows run as System Account but with their permissions trimmed down to impersonate those of the user that initiated the workflow. We faced a similar issue to yours in our SharePoint environment and identified that it was due to workflows being fired automatically by System Account. To get around this, we created an administrative ...

A permissions review may resolve this issue. For our case, we had the following architecture: Securable object Description Unique/inherited permissions -------------------- ------------------------ ---------------------------- SiteA Group home page Unique SiteA/SubsiteA Sensitive group ...

I was never able to get this to work with 1 workflow but I did find a work around by making a second workflow. I placed the second half of my workflow (the half that was failing) and put it on a second workflow by itself and everything works the way it is supposed to.

For date calculations you can use workflow action Add time to Date Action In your case it will be like Add -14 Days to DueDate (Output to Variable: YourDateVariable). This will substract 14 days from Due Date. Also note - SharePoint stores date in UTC and it dynamically converts it to Regional time on UI.

Option 1. If you're building the form in InfoPath, you can check if all the questions are answered and set a column equal to a specific value that a workflow would either check and end the workflow or check and continue into the meat of the workflow. (Status: Begin Process vs Status: Form Closed) Option 2. In the workflow, check that all columns have values ...

If the other table has the users set as people picker values as well as a department name, you can. You just query the other table's people picker value with the department as a filter (department either hard coded in the workflow or at the item level based on some other choice) when you're selecting the user.

Approving a task or similar actions in theory means you are updating a list item. And each list item has a unique ID, and it can be easily retrieved in a SharePoint workflow. From your question, I understand you have 3 requirements 1. Send an email from a workflow. Which is pretty simple just insert an action Send an Email from ribbon 2. To get the ...

My issues appears to be related to item-level permissions that our workflow applies. When using the Replace List Item Permissions Action you need to use an Impersonation Step that runs as the workflow author/last modified user. However, despite being a Site Collection Administrator, this didn't seem sufficient. Instead I added myself to an Owners group ...

Yes, you can do that. Take a look at this following great example explained by Laura Rogers with all the necessary detail: Click to Copy List Item to New in SharePoint 2007. Hope this helps!

I was in a similar situation where users with full control could run the workflow to completion, but contribute and under the workflow would end up cancelled. None of the common answers provided (App Step, App Permissions, User Profile sync Application, Applicaiton pool Settings, etc) worked for me. The big issue was with the workflow configuration itself. ...

I have fixed this issue. When I tried to implement Jamie's suggestion, I got an error saying that not all the properties are filled. So I went into the content types via designer and made the "Title" from required to optional. I then went ahead and opened the InfoPath file and removed the existing InfoPath file from the workflow and published my existing ...

You will need to create another field in the list by the name of Previous Owner. Don't display it in the view. Set it to the same value to Owner when the item is created by a separate workflow that is run when a new item is created. Then create another workflow that only runs when the item is updated and compare the values of the Previous Owner and Owner. ...

No direct way because SharePoint Designer workflow don't give us Previous values like Event Receivers does. If you don't want to follow Event Receiver path, then try below workaround You need to have a hidden field in the list (Say Previous Owner). Add logic in you New/Edit form to populate Previous Owner field with what value in Issue Owner field. (This ...

I actually figured out a way to do this. Will blog about it sometime soon, but in short: In SharePoint Designer, save the workflow as a template. Download the template (WSP) from the Site Assets library. Import the WSP into a Visual Studio project as described here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee231603.aspx Add this new workflow project to ...

I had this before, you should just be able to open the site the workflow sits on in SP designer, go to all files, find the workflow in the folder structure (think it is under workflows -> forms off the top of my head) then you get the option to check it back in. If it errors and says - cannot perform this operation, the file is no longer checked out or ...
