You could try to do it client side. Use JQuery in a CEWP to check the date. If the date = the first of the month, update a field in the list to track it and have your workflow check for the flag when an item is modified. This will keep you from having to worry about pause timer services which can get messy if there are a bunch of them. Should not be too ...

This is the expected behavior: in SP 2010, the query only returns the first item. To update multiple items, you'll have to resort to tricks, for example add a column that serves as a flag once an item is updated. Another option is to attach the workflow to the second list (the one with the Owner field). This has been addressed in SP 2013 (kind of...) where ...

One would think that string manipulation were a trivial thing to do through either a calculated column or a workflow. The -sad- truth is that none of the two are of help for this specific task. calculated columns: the problem is that (unexplicably, at least to me) they don't support the SUBSTITUTE function, so, although possible with a complicated ...

There is a SPLongOperation class you can use. SPLongOperation Class on MSDN I would suggest that Workflows are typically for long-running, asynchronous tasks (that is, control is returned to the user via the GUI while workflow does its work), and that something like an event receiver is probably more suited to short tasks like yours. Using event receivers ...

In the workflow 2013, if you have permission for a group of AD will not work. You must have permission directly or else a SharePoint group. I faced a similar problem, only changed the scheme permission. I removed all permissions for the AD group, created a SharePoint group and gave permissions directly. Boom, it worked.
