I just learned that SP Workflow 2013 is "not yet available" for those of us with the Office 365 Government E1, Office 365 Government E3, or Office 365 Government E4 plans! Neither apparently is Access Services. But from the question above, apparently we're not missing much on the WF 2013 end...

This is not a workflow. Create a timer job to check the documents in the library every day for the planned end date.

If you cannot use timer jobs you can do this with pure SharePoint worfklow as well. You can use a custom list to gather all new discussion titles in the title field (an item a day) then wait for a specific time and send an e-mail containing all the titles. What you need to achieve this: An empty custom list called "New dicusssions" A workflow to ...

It sounds to me like you're a relative beginner when it comes to SharePoint workflows, but you understand what SharePoint is. Therefore I recommend these courses from Lynda.com: SharePoint Designer 2013 - Custom Workflows SharePoint Designer 2013 - Creating Data Driven Sites SharePoint Designer 2013 - Branding SharePoint Sites If you're looking for ...

No, there are no coverage for workflow or taxonomy in SP REST API. But you can use CSOM: Start SharePoint 2013 Workflows with JavaScript Client Object Model

In such cases it's better to use custom activities in Sharepoint Designer that allow you to implement business process you need. There are 2 ways of how to do it: 1. Code your own workflow activities using Visual Studio or 2. Use any of 3-rd party ready to use workflow activities for Sharepoint Designer. The one I've seen is Virto Sharepoint Workflow ...

Instead of update use "Set an item in current library " action. This will not restart the workflow.

Save the list as a template. Download the list template. Import the list template to the other farm and activate it as a feature. Create a list from that template. The new list will have the workflows.

It will. When an item is paused like that, the information is serialized to the database and will get picked up by the workflow timer job when the time comes to wake up and do something. This has been the behavior ever since I can recall.

Yes! That is the point of workflows, they are not like you think with services where they have to stop whenever a server restarts, but it is processed in batches and states. For example, the action "Pause until date" the workflow will really resume whenever the date passes, even if it is 10 minutes afterwards.

Go to All Files > Workflows Folder. Then select the workflow you want to work with. Right Click on the "xoml" file then select "Open With" > "SharePoint Designer (open as workflow)" Once it's opened, published it again. Then it will show up again in the Workflow tab.

You can have multiple instances of versions of the same workflow. If you go to Worflow Settings on the list's ribbon, you will be able to see old instances and then be able to remove instances of the old versions of your changed workflow. This is based on my SP 2010 knowledge. Suspect that spec will not have changed at 2013.

Check this link for a possible solution. Relevant part: Uncheck the option for 'updating workflow status to list automatically'. This is in designer, on the page having option 'Edit the workflow' This is for point 2 of your question.

Looks like someone had a similar issue here. Error: The option for the SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform is not available in sharepoint designer Let me know if the solution works for you.

It looks as though we were doing the same demo! I had the same steps and error. I managed to find this great article on sharepoint dictionaries which helped explain it. You need to add brackets around the dictionary index when using the "Get an item from a dictionary" step. ([%Variable: index%])/Title
