You can create a condition like approval status is equal to approved and then put an action set field to value inside it (I don't have access to SPD at the moment). For field you take the target column (Approved Content) and for value you take the source column (Content) of the current item. I used this for lookup columns, as they only store the IDs and not ...

Although it's not a real answer, I am not able to comment, so here it goes: I have the exact same problem with lists created declaratively with Visual Studio: I cannot use lookup fields inside SharePoint Designer workflow. I created another list in the same site from UI, added an existing lookup site column and when creating a workflow on this new list, the ...

I had a similar problem, tried all the fixes in several blogs, even tuned the servers, but still sometimes 'failed on start' My sp workflow was quite large, probably a few hundred lines, I noticed it failing at certain places, which were usually deep within the wf code within several else if statements. I removed the majority of else if and else statements ...

We found out that the Workflow was created using Nintex and that is why we were getting this error.

If you cannot use Visual Studio for it, so I would recommend you to take a look on ready solutions, that have already actions you need for SharePoint Designer. You can try Workflows Pack from Virto. And looks like they have that action you need and it's free. Check the actions list it on their website - ...

Add two fields in the list: Status (text) and Assigned to(user). Initially, they will be empty. In the workflow, check if they are empty. If yes, fill the status and assigned to columns and send a link to Edit / Display form of that item. In display / edit forms, make a check for both of these fields. If both satisfy the condition, hide the other fields and ...

I had same problem, solution is just create a new SPFieldLookupValue and read LookupValue property. It's quite simple, but can save some time for others. public String LinkTitleCode { get { var lookupText = Get<String>("LinkTitleCode"); return new SPFieldLookupValue(lookupText).LookupValue; } }

Imagine this column with multiple check box: 1 , 2 , 3 When you tick checkbox 1, sharepoint will return this : {"results":["1"]} When you tick checkbox 1 & 3, sharepoint will return this: {"results":["1","3"]} I think that you can play with condition and the result for doing what you want. I hope that it be helpful. Cordialy, ...

The "Add permission" action creates a new SharePoint group, grants that group the permissions you specified to the list item on which the workflow is running, and adds the users and/or groups you specified in the workflow to that group's members.

Which version of sharepoint are you working on? If its sharepoint 2010, I am sorry, there is no easy way. You might need to write custom action in visul studio and have it in SPD2010 If its 2013, then you can use "Call this HTTP web service" action inside SPD desinger. This method uses REST and you can get the filtered data directly. Please refer below ...

I think I know what you mean, but there may not be that much general information out there (there was not when I was looking) I started with this handy blog and went from there, maybe it will help you get a better understanding - Create subsite with call HTTPS web service

This might be related to the fact that the workflow will run in a different context when such a delay action is used. Make sure the sharepoint timerjob that for workflows (which is used to send the email in that case) uses an account that has permissions to send emails.

There is already a question on this: SPD 2013 Workflow cancel when using email action It is mainly because if the email id is not valid or concerned user is not valid and not because you had another customer event handler.

I just came across this while looking for a solution to another problem. It's probably a bit late, however someone else might end up here. I had a similar problem, perhaps not quite the same, in SP2010. My solution was to run a main procedural workflow with a lot of key stages and "wait / pause until" conditions, and then trigger different workflows. The ...

Source : I suggest you add some logging features to the Workflow, examine the ULS logs, check that your workflow history is cleaned up properly etc. To save you from searching around, I'll elaborate on how to do logging effectively. I use this method, found under Action->Core Actions->Log to History List in Workflow Designer. I put these logs after every ...

How long did you wait? The default wait time for jobs to launch is 15 minutes (they are marked "In Progress" until the SharePoint Timer Service actually gets around to running the job). You can reduce this to 1 minute in Central Admin.

In my instance, the customer had relay issues with the email server configured in outgoing email settings. Simple workflows worked fine (logging to history etc) but as soon as email was added to the workflow, I received the internal server error 500. As soon as I updated the outgoing email setting with an allowed relay partner, the workflows worked fine. ...

There are a variety of ways to do this. First there is the Office 365 language selection that is available in the cog, Office 365 settings. If your tenant is being synchronized with dirsync, then this option isn't available and is instead supplied via your on prem AD synchronizing the PreferredLanguage attribute. This translates the UI for you. In ...

After this, set the field "CheckField" to true. Create another workflow to run when item has edited and check if the "CheckField" is true. If it was, verify the user and if is valid, set the ...

You cannot loop sharepoint 2010 workflows in an easy manner, are you in a 2013 environment, if so you can use 2013 workflow. Otherwise the path you will have to take is one of the following: Use a 3rd party workflow tool (Nintex, K2) Make 2 lists and have the workflows talk to each other, basically you will have the workflow create and update items ...

A huge thank you to @TashasEv for that answer. I was having the same problem for days and couldn't figure it out, but your answer set me on the correct path. Here's was our problem - whenever a workflow would run, we would get an error saying that the workflow failed to run, and "Workflow canceled by System Account." As I went deeper into the workflow ...
