If you don't already know about JSLink in SP2013, have a look at some examples here. JS Link allows you to override the way data is rendered on various forms - viz. new, edit, view. In your case, new and edit forms are already behaving the way you want, but you need to override the view form for given field. So you can choose to override your checkbox ...

You can't specify the FROM address for email messages when you use the "Send an email" option from a SharePoint Designer 2013 workflow action. I found this article, but i did not find a Microsoft documentation regarding it. However I had the same problem, I installed a SharePoint plugin called I Love Sharepoint. It is for 2010, if you want/need you have to ...

So it turns out I had actually inserted the code into the wrong part. There are two Zone Templates (one is further down) and I should've inserted the parts in there instead.

Try to click on Advanced Mode button in Ribbon menu. That should "unyellow" all code. Be careful as in this mode you can do a lot of damage to your page if you do not know what you are doing and render the page uneditable by conventional means of Sharepoint (using Designer or webpage). Michal

In our case, we have SPD workflow which triggers on item update. The workflow perform below actions; Delete the item from second list with same title Then copy the item from first list to second list. This way we keep the latest copy of item of first list to the second list

I had the same problem and I've found a solution. It's a tricky one, but it works. You can do that with Designer in your workflow. What you have to do is: Test if a field of your element of list A is different than the same field of the element of list B (e.g Title field - maybe it doesn't exist yet, that's why it's tricky), Do your stuff if it's true, if ...

Using folder is not a good practice. I believe you might have chosen this folder approach because SharePoint is new field for you. Instead of folders you can use Metadata. Then you can create views to filter data based on your requirements. There a plenty of benefits from this approach. If you want to stick with folders, then I believe what you are looking ...

It works. I don't know why, but as I said, I didn't do anything and my field became optional. Then I think how I do it is the good way. Unfortunately, the changes seem to happen later for no apparent reason.

Normally a task in SharePoint designer returns an outcome (which button was clicked) and a task ID. If there is an outcome return value, you should use that one. If there isn't one try looking up the task instance using the task ID return value. The return variables are visible at the end of the task action between brackets.

Yes. You can use custom list for your purpose. Steps: Create List A as a custom list. Add your data (A1 to A24) in list. Create List B and create new lookup column, set the name of the column. Choose "List A" in Get information from dropdown list. Choose the column name which is in List A in In this column dropdown list. Now you can see the values of ...

There are two types of validations at list level: Column validation: Here you could validate the values for a particular field. You can configure this from the edit column page - with different messages for different columns. Item validation: You need to use this when you have a rule that requires values of multiple columns. You can configure this from ...

You can avoid this behaviour (the two events that fire on upload) by setting the Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited to Yes in the Versioning settings of your library. This way the edit metadata form won't trigger the ItemUpdated event because the file hasn't been checked in after initial upload. Just be sure to update your ...

SharePoint is not a relational database. Trying to make it into one will be a sizable undertaking. SharePoint columns can be lookups into other lists, but any relational processing will require a lot of manual work, or coding a solution with Visual Studio. The best front end for SharePoint?

There is no "formula" that can send an email. You can use a formula to calculate a value in a column, and that value can look like an email address. Such a formula might look like =IF([ChoiceField]="jack","jack@abc.com",IF([ChoiceField]="bob","bob@abc.com","tom@abc.com")) If you have more than three choices you need to nest more IFs. If you want to send ...

Are here any components installed on your machine from other (older) office versions? i.e. for the access data grid view to work in a list, the 32 bit access 2007 data access components need to be installed. if that is the case, remove those components, install SPD and reinstall the access dao components

Assuming that each contact can only be assigned to one project, then one possiblity could be to use different content types based on the project the contact is assigned to. Have a base Contact content type. Then for each project create a Project X contact content type, which inherits from the base Contact content type and adds the fields needed for Project ...

Why not have a list of all contacts and then have a lookup column that pertains to the project or projects he/she is on? Then you can filter in or out the contacts that the Project pertains to. The contact would have a lookup column called "Project" that would point back to the Project on hand--and let there be multiple selections.

Another option is to use a task list. In the Advanced settings, do 2 things: Turn on the management of content types Turn on E-Mail Notification Hide the unnecessary filed from the content type you don't need. Then, when an item is created, it will email the designated Assigned To user(s).

In SharePoint 2013 was introduced a so called Client Rendering Mode (CSR) which represents a rendering engine for list views, list forms and search results.

You can have a IF-Else condition in your workflow. There is no specific while loop in 2010 designer workflows. Can you please elaborate your requirement.

The reason why this error is thrown is that when your SharePoint 2013 Workflow tries to start the related SharePoint 2010 workflow, SharePoint checks permission level for both the current list as well as the Site level permissions. So you need to elevate permission at the site level for the people who are going to be initiating the workflows. Go to site ...

You definitely don't want to use a workflow for this. Workflows are good for certain things, but the background color for a list item is not actually stored on the list item, so there is no way a workflow will be able to access or modify it. To me, it sounds like a job for Client Side Rendering (CSR), which would use JavaScript to check the value of the ...

Nope I don't believe so. If you have a set of actions that may repeat, you will basically have to add them each time after your condition. Yes this will cause a bit of 'duplicate code' but the workflows are more for non programmers so they set it up to be ran in order from step 1 to step 2 to step 3, etc. You could, however write the ...

There are three ways in my mind if you are using an embedded JavaScript to redirect. 1. Use SharePoint Designer to Edit the Page directly. Change your JavaScript code and save. 2. Export the page using SharePoint Designer, make changes as required and import again. 3. In your IE settings, disable JavaScript on your browser. No JS will render and you can ...

Yes, you are right. for SPD 2013 workflows you need Workflow manager...2013 requires Windows Workflow Foundation 4, for this we need WF manager n SP 2013. without workflow manager you can only create 2010 workflows...2010 requires Windows Workflow Foundation 3 which automatically install with sp 2013...

Well, firstly, you could get into the SharePoint field as a front-end developer (web pages and workflows) with your associate. There isn't a degree that will teach you SharePoint. I'd recommend Computer Science, since it should teach you a couple of programming languages. If you can learn C#, all the better. This skillset would allow you to be a ...
