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 ...

Considering that you are using a SharePoint group and presuming that the Assign a task step is not running inside an App Step, then make sure that everyone can view the membership of the group. Go to the group settings page and the select Everyone option under the "Who can view the membership of the group?" question. The reasoning behind this is that the ...

What you could to is just create a OOTB custom list, change the Title field to "New Idea" or something relevant and then enable ratings for the list from List Settings > Rating Settings. Enable it to Yes and select Star ratings and voila! Users can now rate the item/idea on a scale of 1-5 stars. If you wanna take it further from there, you could set up a ...

The question is what do you really need? Getting an item does you no good, unless you want information from the item, or want to change the item. You found how to change an item. To get fields from an item, you would use the lookup and select whichever list you'd like, which field from that list, and the "WHERE" clause, so to speak. You can only specify one ...

You can create the group in SharePoint and send de email to the SharePoint Group. Let me explain. Understanding that you can not configure Exchange, I think there is no solution using AD groups. The alternative I propose is: create native sharepoint groups and associate users directly to SharePoint groups. I know that probably you prefer to manage AD ...

Are you looking in the browser under Site Settings >> Workflow Settings? This will only show site workflows. To see your list workflow you'd have to go to the Workflow Settings for the list. If you're looking in Designer and one is missing, try going to Lists and Libraries, select the list, and see if the workflow shows up under the Workflows section.

I struggled with the SP.WorkflowServices.WorkflowServicesManager as well, trying to do the same thing (start a workflow from a button on the Display form). I don't remember exactly what my problems were, but I ended up resorting to using the REST API and jQuery AJAX: function getWfSubscriptions() { var listID = _spPageContextInfo.pageListId; var ...

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 ...

You would need to create a new field in the document library eg. "All Check In Comments" Then go to SPD create a new List workflow for the document library. Create a workflow variable (Set ...

Make sure the list workflow is published Navigate to the list and click the List/Library tab, then click Workflows at the top Make sure you have ...

You can use the Pause until action to pause the workflow until the 'Next Review Date'. Just configure the action to use the column you created for the 'Review Date'. Then after the Pause you can use the Send Notification to send a email notification.

You can definitely create reminders with a 2013WF. Should be a conditional loop: Loop while CurrentItem:Outcome not equals Completed >>> Email [USER] >>> then Pause for [Timeframe] HOWEVER!!!! This only works for items created manually in the task list. If you're trying to set a reminder on a task that was created by a WF on a different list (VERY ...

At least from the description of your steps it seems you might have missed the registration step: Confirm that Workflow is configured correctly by navigating to: https://URLOFWORKFLOWAP:12290/ http://URLOFWORKFLOWAP:12291/ for http. If you receive the scope info xml you are probably ok. Then using account that is part of the WF Admin group and is ...

There is a known limitation related to send SPD workflow e-mails to AD groups. Basically AD groups are seen by SPD as a regular user... let's remember that AD groups have properties like e-mail, name, login and everything else. So, the SPD can't understand that you are trying to send e-mails to everyone inside that group. What you can do is create something ...

You can achieve this easily by using timer job. Create a timer job which will run on daily basis, write condition to check List A items age like, today - created date if it's more than 50 take that SPListItemCollection and do foreach on it to move to List B. Delete collection post successful movement to List B.

I have seen many issues with long running workflows with pause until... My recommendation, if it works for your scenario would be to use a the "Information Management Policy" to trigger a workflow on the Due Date -3. The workflow would consist of only sending the email to the assigned person(s). The IMP uses a timer job that "watches" for a date to fall ...
