You can create a condition to check if the 'Status' is 'Pending' and send a e-mail with a workflow.

I have the same problem in front of me. It looks like the Sandbox solution requires Visual Studio, so here is an alternative that truly doesn't require VS. The problem in a nutshell is that for whatever reason, SharePoint cannot handle multiple values being returned in a lookup. Therefore, the solution is to ensure that each lookup only returns a single ...

This sounds similar to something I'm doing, and have had a lot of issues with, due to the approval process no longer being in SharePoint Designer 2013. However, your process is certainly possible doing something similar to the following: Create a 2010 workflow in SharePoint Designer 2013 to handle the end of the approval process.

That is a misconception that groups from AD wont work. Please be sure to check "Select All" for the container in the Sync Connection and run full sync.

So the real issue I was having was essentially just using a Workflow to copy a List item from one list to another. It appears that there is no good way to do this using a Sharepoint 2013 Workflow. However, I discovered that for a Sharepoint 2010 workflow this is a pretty trivial task because there is a predefined Action for this.

This answer is community wiki. Feel free to improve. According to Topic Starter, the solution to this problem is the reinstallation of Workflow Manager and subsequent server restart.

Is this 2010 or 2013? You are correct to use the On Item Created, this is only the condition for the Workflow to start and isn't related to what causes the rest of the workflow steps to trigger. You just need to use the "Wait for ..." activities so your workflow doesn't stop it's execution or, alternatively, start a Task Process for the HR team to ...

You need to go to your web site cache located in C:\Users{your user name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache Delete this data and republish your workflow. The issue is that SharePoint Designer at times after a lot of modifications to the same workflow causes the workflow to publish an older version.

If we are talking about documents, it could be firing appropriately if you have required fields or multiple content types in your library and you are uploading files. After the upload, you are taken to a page where you can edit the properties and metadata of the file. This is actually an item edit process and could be triggering your workflow.

What I ended up going with is javascript hosted on the page that queries the Workflow Tasks for all tasks for the loaded list assigned to the person in question (or a group they are in). Create buttons in each row that has a task (and hide the other rows since I couldn't easily find a way to filter to only rows that have a task associated with them), and ...

I would not do that. SharePoint is not the best with long running workflows. Using SharePoint designer workflows in this fashion takes some doing with multiple lists and such that work off each other. Barring a completely custom solution, I would at either: Using a scheduled task to check the items and send the email Using a scheduled task to start a ...

You could utilize the jQuery.SPServices wrapper for Workflow.asmx web service and its GetToDosForItem and AlterToDo methods starting from this SPServices story if you need an example of how to call the web service for multiple items. In short, use SP.ListOperation.Selection.getSelectedItems method to get items marked with checkboxes, then for each item, ...

You will need a custom page that will allow them to select the tasks they would like to approved and then you will need to have a service that will do the approvals for you. You should be able to accomplish this completely using javascript and this service implementation. Public Function CompleteExpenseTask(ByVal approvalItemID As Integer, ByVal ...

Thank you! Setting Authorization to null in the Request Header fixed the 401 issue. A bonus answer here is on what you do after the 401 issue is fixed since SP workflow requires JSON if you are going to do anything useful after you call the API. As was pointed out Excel REST only creates JSON under a text/javascript content type, not application/json. ...

The problem for me was in the request header. By default Sharepoint Workflow's REST calls are assumed to be against OAuth-compatible REST APIs (such as the listsvc in SHarePoint) and so it adds a bearer token to the header which is in the form of Authorization: Bearer and an Authorization-Token component with the token itself. Unfortunately, this ...

With SharePoint 2013 workflows you can always use REST services to make the appropriate calls to SharePoint with the information you are looking for, so that anything outside the list of SharePoint workflow actions can be executed. You can make an HTTP Request action point to a web REST API. Using the HTTP request: ...

Looks like you're constantly updating the list item (check version number) and each update triggers the same workflow on it. You should probably add another field in the form's main data source to store a boolean value "already sent" and check its value (should not be true) before sending the email and setting its value to true right after sending the ...
