Internally when you create a list item with a field of type hyperlink, it stores the url and the description together, comma delimited. So if you try to just insert the field value into the email body, that is what you'll get. I believe the course of action here is to store the field in a variable, and when you set the variable, you tell it to return the ...

This SE answer explains why this occurs (it's for event receivers, but applies to workflows as well): When you add a document to your document library the event ItemAdded was called. If you work with the standard upload, after that the document has been added, a popup window will be open to insert the metadata of your document, this fires the ItemUpdated ...

Alex, I think it's going to depend on when you need the recurring task to execute. If you're okay with it running on a timescale (e.g. hourly, daily, etc), you can use Timer jobs. If you need to be based on an activity (e.g. list item updates), then you'll need go with a workflow or event receiver. For a daily recurring task, you can go with a single Timer ...

I typically handle this with flag columns (could be yes/no or choice). So in your case, I would have 4 flag fields, one for each user. So at the beginning of State A you'd have a check that if flagA is no, email user A, then set flag A to yes. Repeat that for all the other states. Then when an item is edited within the state, it won't refire the email.

You will need to break inheritance on the list items and then assign or remove permissions as needed. With SharePoint 2013 workflows - there is no activities available to do this. You can make a REST activity to call the API to do it, but it's an undocumented API (i.e. not supported). The other option is to use SharePoint 2010 workflow. You can either ...

You would want to create a default view on your tasks list where Assigned To is equal to [Me] and percent Complete is less than 100. This will filter the data to show the current logged in user's tasks that are not complete. This isn't secure in the sense, the user could get to all the list items, it is just a filter of the existing list data. I don't know ...

must not see How crucial is it that the user not gain access to filtered items? Set a filter on a view, Assigned To = "[Me]". Make it the default view and if necessary delete other views which would reveal the items.

If this is a 2013 workflow you could use the new loop feature to periodically check if a date is within range. Something like this (short pause, for testing):

You could consider the following approach, in particular remove the specified column explicitly once the workflow is published: //The remaining code is omitted for clarity... //Create the Association workflowSubSvc.PublishSubscriptionForList(worklowSub, targetList.Id); ctx.ExecuteQuery(); //Remove workflow status field from default view var ...

You would simply create another approval task and assign it to the COO. This is a separate approval needed on top of the manager approval, so you wouldn't want to edit the manager's approval task.

Found the solution! In the email I created a lookup with the original list as source and the hyperlink field as the field. In the second part of the lookup window I took the ID field of the original list and as the value I took the current item and the id field.

In case this is still causing grief, there is a way to migrate SharePoint Designer list workflows from one location to another. The approach is fairly manual but is a useful alternative to other options. Using SharePoint Designer, select the workflow and Export to Visio. This creates a .vwi file which is just a zip file. Add the .zip suffix to the ...

It does not look like you can. You have to specify the group/person that would happen to be the Site Owner. For example. If you had an HR page and the Site Owner is the HR Site Owners Group, then in the workflow you would have to specify HR Site Owners Group. This makes it a pain to create workflows form templates.

I know this is an old thread, but after spending a good while looking about I found an OOTB SharePoint Designer 2010 solution for this problem. To move a document to a different folder create an SPD2010 workflow and use the Update Item action to change the path and name of the document. After inserting the update list item action click on the "this list" ...
