I think Workflow is the simple way . Refer the blog to follow step by step http://www.kalmstrom.com/Tips/SharePointArchiveDocs.htm

If you want to restrict the users to have permission in only their tasks(ie Assigned to me), you have to use SharePoint 2010 workflow and replace permission on that item to allow only Assigned user edit rights on that item. Another workaround is to edit all the views in the Task list and filter to show only those items which has Assigned column value = ...

We can also use "If" actions to evaluate who is the currently logged on user and compare that with the item and then allow or disallow updates.

i think SPD2013 is getting confused with your office versions after office update. i presume the possible solution would be not to change the registry. SPD2010 and 2013 on the same machine shouldnt interfear with each other. solution what you would need todo is uninstall SPD2013 and reinstall SPD2013. This will re-associate to the correct version of ...

In this sitution you have two options. create new site collection using the correct template then move the content. use 3rd party tools create new site collection and move the content...i,e sharegate or metalogix etc...they have trial version.

There is no way OOTB you can attach multiple documents to a list item . I have done it problematically using grid view where i upload the multiple documents to file server folder and maintain the reference to the folders in SharePoint List . The folder contains all the files uploaded at one go . There should be some telerik control as well to achieve this . ...

Open it in datasheet view. Click on the attachment column. VOILA :)

I do not think that can be done. It shows the 4th view only once we click on it. (Dynamic HTML) But I found a workaround. Go to Edit Page. Click on Add web part and add a content editor with the links to all 4 views. Edit list view web part and disable the view selector menu. Also if needed, set tool bar to no tool bar and remove search. (Look where to ...

Try including the inline CSS to the body of the email. Use the max-width property for images inside the body's div. For ex. if you blog post body's div has a class 'ms-BlogPost' add css as: <style type='text/css'> div.ms-BlogPost img {max-width: 600px; } </style>

Oddly enough, this issue only occurred on a site column that was bound to the site content type present in the list. When I added a column directly to the list, I could populate the item via SharePoint Designer Workflow as expected.

Please use Managed Metadata for this, it's made exactly for this very reason. Go to "Term Store Management" under "Site Administration" Create a "New Group" by clicking on the arrow right next to root icon you see in the left pane of the center panel you see in front of you. If you are unable to find this option, give yourself or ask the SharePoint ...

You need to check the Uls Logs(may be enable the verbos for BCS) and also check the Application logs on sharepoint server as well as on the SQL server. Most common reason for not being able to get to the database, apart from someone forgetting to plug it into the network or switch it on, is permissions. And usually the database is SQL Server and we don't ...

this should be done using Visual Studio 2012-2013 or you can hack at it using SharePoint Designer. I am currently doing the hacking part and believe me if i had the time i would go back and do it the visual studio way. When adding CSS to any aspx page ensure you use: If you want to apply CSS styles to a page layout per device channel use the below: ...

Well, since version 2013, SharePoint has implemented a new feature called the Design Manager to make it easier for people who have no experience with SharePoint to implement their own custom styles. You enable the Design Manager by enable the publishing feature. To enable the design manager follow the next steps: Click on the gear icon in the top right ...

If you're adamant in changing the webpart properties through powershell, you can use the following code: //Get reference to the SPSite object $SPsite = Get-SPSite "http://mywebapp/sites/mySite" //Iterate through all sub sites and root site foreach($SPWeb in $SPsite.AllWebs){ //Get reference to the landing page. Since it is a publishing site so ...

This can be done a bit easily with a Visual Studio Workflow or if you have SharePoint Designer, with a SPD workflow. Another suggestion is add the Project Owner column too with the lookup. You can add many columns from that list to this list when you are creating a lookup. So you do not have to refer multiple lists in your workflow. Now create a Sequential ...

The preferred approach would be to change them in the Page Layout, create a new solution package and deploy that to the farm. This avoids unghosting of the page layout file. Or if you are clear about the consequences of unghosting you can go to the Master Page Gallery (http://sitecollectionroot/_catalogs/masterpage) and edit the Page Layout with SharePoint ...

Most of what you see in the browser or in SharePoint designer is not stored in the file structure on the SharePoint server. Rather, it is actually content, which is stored in the SharePoint content database(s). The content dbs are kept in SQL. For ease of understanding, the data stored in SQL is translated into a hierarchical tree structure when represented ...

It will depend upon how your master page is structured. A neat way would be add a new div wrapper inside #s4-workspace and add the CSS for the wrapper class. Include the css/reference from the master page: /* For Fixed Width */ div.wrapper { margin: 0 auto; width: 1000px; } /* For Fluid Width */ div.wrapper { margin: auto 5% !important; ...

I did my new hire form in Infopath using the same book and ran into the same issue. Not sure if OP is using Infopath but if anyone else is, this was the fix for me. The column wasn't editable so the workflow couldn't set field to that column. Set the gpinstanceruncount as a number field in infopath Add it in property promotion Go to publish (not quick ...

No, this is exactly what the masterpage is designed for. You're going about it the completely wrong way though. These are CSS customizations. Add the following somewhere in the header: <style> #s4-workspace{ width:1024px; margin:auto; } </style> Modify accordingly Also, go through a CSS tutorial to explain to you the basics: ...

One solution is to use SPD2010 and Access together. 1) In SPD, create a column (like TempID or whatever) with Number data type; 2) then, create the workflow so that if the TempID column is greater than 0, move the item from one library to another; 3) then, switch to Access. From the External Data group, import the SharePoint list. 4) Then, run a update ...

fuandon, The approval check-box is a field on the form library. The workflow process looks like: Requestor submits request form. Manager receives a task notification via email to approve the form, which is a custom task process from Sharepoint Designer. The manager goes to the request form, and checks the approve check-box field. But then they also need ...

Ahh ha I found out the answer. The path src="/_layouts/15/images/icxlsx.png" point to the host web path of https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/images/icxlsx.png If you wish to access a sitecollection Style Library then you will need to add that onto the url such as /Sites/Style library/ ... or what ever you have named your site ...

To be honest, i'm struggling over the exact same issue, well i need to move a current item to another library but into a Doc Set. From what i've found so far it can be done but you need to use the 'Update Item' action and update the 'Path and Name' to be "document set name/current item name". I'll get back to you if I get anything else working. Luke

some times due to some workflows SharePoint designer may give above error. you can find the custom workflow by going through your site collection --> Galleries --> solutions and deactivate the custom solution. Your SharePoint Designer becomes free of that error.

Workflows are based on timer jobs. Therefore if you keep the workflow waiting it will go into hibernation state. The performances of the application pool will not be largely affected at its first sight. But it keeps necessary resources locked to it. Also these types of workflows will run slower. I would suggest splitting the long workflow into two ...

Did you use AD Import or SharePoint Sync for your UPS Connection to AD? We ran into a similar problem having used the sync method for a connection and found that the problem solved could be solved if we disabled NETBIOS names so the profile sync was recovering the AD profiles by Distinguished Name rather than NETBIOS Name.

you can save the confirmation date value in some variable and use for statement then Wait for Confirmation date' to be greater than so that you don't have nay null value.

Other way is , create calculated filed to show "yes" if all 3 app rovers have approved else "no". Then using parallel block : 1st block - wait for due date 2nd block - wait for field change in current item (newly created calculated to "yes") last step of both workflow should be "stop / end workflow"

To fix the above issue I included the following in my css file: .ms-breadcrumb-header{ margin-left:-50px; }

it looks like your workflow is picking up the last instance of the found pool of names! so in your case, you have the name JDOE, the workflow in AD picks up JDOE and JDOE1 and JDOE2 it would then return JDOE2 as its the last occurance in the array of returned items. If in the people picker you had JDOE1 it would return JDOE1 only and send the mail to ...

To get the user's name to show in a readable format, select any of the 'User' options either in 'Workflow context' or 'Current List' but change the 'Return field as' to 'Display name' instead of the default 'As string' For example: Data Source: Current List Field form source: Created By Return Field as: Display Name

I think the issue related to User Profile Services, could you try to run synchronization with Active Directory via PowerShell using following command: Get-SPUser –Web http://<name of web app> | Set-SPUser –SyncFromAD or for sync one user Set-SPUser –Identity '<domain>\<username>' –SyncFromAD –Web http://<name of web app>

Thank you Robert Lindgren. I had published the js files at one point. Later I moved some of the js files to different folders. Not realizing they have to be republished. I published them again and now the users can see the js files. It is one of those things where you shoot yourself in the foot. I have also changed the type to text/javascript as promted by ...

In addition to customizing List Views & Forms via XSLT, with SharePoint 2013 was introduced a Client Side Rendering (CSR) technique.

If you can reverse your requirement where the lookups are at a higher site than the list consuming them, then you can use site columns to accomplish this. Site columns only exist on the current site and it's subsites.

My answering this question might be a little unfair as I work with Jason and have access to his dev environment. The issue was that he was attempting to take the entire JSON response and write it to the WF log list. The response exceeded the limit for a field of type text and thus caused the exception. I changed his example WF to send the text in an email ...

I've been working on something quite similar with an enterprise wiki. From what I've come across is that you can set up a library with content approval turned on and from there use the OOTB publishing approval workflow. I'm not sure if you can assign the task using a field from the list. You can create SP groups, use AD groups, or use specific SP users ...

Although they are OOTB actions, they are not available in every context. Not too informative, but still accurate quote from SharePoint Designer 2010 reference guide: The actions available in the category vary depending on your context in a workflow.
