Turned out that when associating workflow (publishing subscription) with a list it is not enough to use $wfSubService.PublishSubscriptionForList($sub, $ApprovalListId); - you need to explicitly set list id on workflow definition. I edited the PowerShell script and added the following lines: $wfDef.RestrictToType = "List" $wfDef.RestrictToScope = $...

Create a calculated column in your list a that creates the name you want the file to be renamed to Create a workflow Action: If Current Item Field:Name is not empty Update List Item List: CurrentItem Field: Path and Name Value: [%CalculatedColumnName%] 3.On the Update List Item dialog box, click OK.

You could load these two lists up in Excel and do the comparison there. =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(<single column I value>,<entire column E range>,1,FALSE)),FALSE, TRUE) This will check cell in Column I against the range of values in Column E, and set the value to True or False.

I can only send myself an email if i select myself as a specific user. I cannot just use my text name or email address. I'm not sure how i got 2 user names, must have happened during our 2013 migration

If I understand you correct you want to have a have Approver A for Blog Post 1 and Approver B for Blog Post 2 and then again Approver A for Blog Post 3 and so on and so forth. The only way I can think of is to make use of a helper list. You could have a list like this: List of Approvers ID | Order | Approver | Last Active ---------------------------------...

Putting the html directly into your email like this WON'T WORK: Instead, you need to create a string variable to hold your html, including any fields you want to include (with no spaces anywhere in the html) and use that variable in the email:

If you would like to customize the email body with html using SPD, I would suggest selecting Advanced Properties on the email action and add your HTML template into the body section.


1

You can simply add the list data from ADD or Change Lookup button after the below email template body.Pleas see below image. This is the example where i added few list column names with their values coming from list. UPDATED You can see below image to get better idea. You can get the item values from another list as well.

You do overwrite the ModifiedBy value. But what does SharePoint do after your update? SharePoint sets the ModifiedBy field to the User who did/triggered the update

I would create three columns Dept A Approved Dept B Approved Dept C Approved Whenever each department approves, the column value changes to Approved by <User>. Then whenever the workflow starts again, it will know that the Dept A approved the list item.

I would suggest a change in your information architecture. Instead of two disconnected Lookup fields, only have a single Lookup for "State". Within the source list, each "State" should have an associated "Country" as a separate field value. Then as part of the "State" Lookup in the local list, you can use the 'Additional Fields' option (i.e. Projected ...

Your question is vague! But here is my two cent, based on my understanding what you need is some way to have a task with moving due date. In parallel block try a task with due date set as CalcDueDate in one block and other blocks as usual.

You should use PAUSE condition for 72 hours & check the condition for the same. Please check below image for reference. Note:- It is just for an example i have created for other user. Check my answer here if you can get some help from there.

Pause for duration and then check whether the user has completed their action. Insert your cursor inside the main step (see red line in pic) then click or type "Parallel Block" to add that action. Then add steps inside the "The following actions will run in parallel" section.

I can give you 2 easy options: Set SecurityManagerApprovalTime to the Workflow Context: Date and Time Started variable. This is the date and time when the workflow started which should work if the workflow starts when the security manager approves/rejects.

I just remembered how I achieved this using workflow variables to check if the date field was blank. Here is what my workflow logic ended up something like this: Set Variable: TempDateString to CurrentItemDateField If Variable TempDateString contains 1/1/0001 send email, set date to today ect... This was a useful way to use the date field to show the ...

You can use Date less than 1/1/1900

The content type that was used during the creation of the original reusable workflow must also be available within your test environment. Specifically, the same content type must be available within the list/library that will contain the reusable workflow.

Use Stages. Once you have assigned your task within the workflow, then use the "Transition to Stage" : Go to End of Workflow.


0

You could try many validations. For instance you could have, Date *is less than* 2/1/0001 Or if you wish to stick with contains, you should try index of, Find 1/1/2001 in Date (output variable to index) ...now if the value of index is valid, you know that the date is blank.

When performing a lookup on a metadata field associated with document, I always added a "Pause for Duration" action of 5 minutes at the start of the workflow. Reason being, uploading a document with metadata is a 2 step process. First, the document is uploaded. Second, the metadata is submitted after the document is uploaded. The problem is that the workflow ...

You could do it with code create a new item copy field values from the original item If you are happy with only activating from a View You can paste this Formula in a Calculated Column and set the Datatype to Number ="<img style=cursor:pointer src=/_layouts/images/icongo01.GIF onclick=""{" &"event.stopPropagation();" &"function cloneItem(...


1

Either you try with Event receiver or a javascript based approach like CSOM/JSOM. workflow only triggers when an item is added/updated/deleted. So you can have a REST API based code which add/update a list item which can cause workflow to trigger.


2

Not possible through OOTB workflow, though you can use SharePoint Designer workflow.Also the workflow triggering has to be done manually or modifying or creating an item. There is no provision for triggering a workflow on clicking of item. You have the option as Set and Create item in Designer workflows through which an item can be created in a list.

To update a hyperlink field using SharePoint designer workflow do like below, SPD Workflow > Action > Set Field in Current Item Set HyperlinkField to http://google.com, Google This is dynamic dynamic string action, in that construct your url, description value information. Note: The comma and space are important.

Just focus on two things: 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.

First, every SharePoint list has a unique column and it's titled ID or OWS_ID. Do you need a workflow or an event handler? Edit.

Each workflow is associated with a XOML file, please check for the difference of XOML settings in New and associated workflow, you can check XOML file with the help of SharePoint Designer. You will certainly get some idea. As per my knowledge there is no such limitation, there might be some custom Workflow activity which is not available after association.

That usually happens when you use an empty field and set it to be something other than a string. For example, when you use a lookup value you can use it as a string, a lookup id, or a lookup value. If that lookup hasn't been set, lookup id and lookup value will give you a coercion error. Same with a people field - if you try to use it as a 'Display Name' in ...

There is no such limitation of use of If statements in SPD 2010. You must did something wrong with the configuration of it. Please check it.

not sure what happened, but I had to delete the "Get an item from a dictionary" action items and re-insert new ones and that fixed the problem.

You need not to do all this. you just need write below formula for your field Current Status. =[Project Status] Since you just need replica, you can use the column value as is.
