This would be tricky with modified date, you would need 2 workflows. Here is an example of something I did recently using 2 fields. There was 1 list where you selected a 'Certification' and a second list which had a number of 'Vouchers' for that certification. I wanted to select a voucher for the specific certification type and make sure it was active. ...

What I would do in this case is have another field that you are using to track the previous value of the attachment field. This would be a true/false or single line of text field. You would hide it in your form either using infopath or content types or jQuery. So let's say this field is called 'hasAttachment' you set the default value to false. When the ...

Workflow is not good in this situation. The best practice is to use EventReceivers and handle the ItemAdding event. The event has Before and After properties, so you can compare whether a new attachment has been added. Then use SPUtility.SendEmail

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 ...

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 ...

You need to add the if statements in a sequential order, and if the IF statement is TRUE, you manipulate a variable. Set variable to FALSE IF Title is equal to ABC Set variable to "TR" IF Date is less than Today Set variable to "variable + UE" (use Fx) IF Variable is equal to "TRUE" Update List Item Else Log to history list "Item was not updated!"

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 ...

Mike's alternative is the easiest to implement. You can also implement a Web Service to do the required actions for you and lastly (and I guess what you really want), you can try to implement the calls listed in this article in successive HTTPSend activities. The JQuery version of the REST calls are listed below. // Change placeholder values before you ...

I've been able to apply unique permissions on a SharePoint 2013 list item by creating a new SharePoint 2010 workflow. This allows you to use an Impersonation Step. Here is a screenshot of the configuration for this step. As long as you've broken inheritance on your list this should work.

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 ...

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 ...

Try SPWeb.Lists[listName] instead of SPWeb.Lists.tryGetList(listName) and this exception will go away.

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 ...

From infopath itself, natively speaking, no, you dont have any way to do it. U could do it through InfoPath, but programmatically and it's not that hard, you could do something like this: SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate() { using (SPSite siteCollectionOuter = new SPSite(strwebApp)) { SPWebApplication webApp = ...

Das I've used a combination of workflows in the past and then used additional functionality to make elements that are a bit tricky - reminders for instance - using other methods. In the past in SP 2010 and 2007, there was a bunch of excellent capabilities which used to add some really useful extra Actions to the options for a SP Designer Workflow - ...
