I'd create an on creation workflow that does: Add time to date, -2 days from the current item, date field. This is stored as a variable for you. pause until the variable date if current item status is not complete, send email, else end the workflow This assumes you have some sort of status column that tracks the progress of the item. If you have a ...

You can either use SharePoint's default people picker column when you assign the tasks. Or you can make a list of all people you want to use, and then make a lookup column to choose from these people when you do the task, and make the column's type of multi selection. Is this what you were asking for? Updated Answer Since you can't do a lookup on a ...

I think you are mixing up a few things in there. In SharePoint there is not an out of the box method for scheduling workflows. You can for sure get creative with multiple lists and looping actions - but this set's you up for trouble in managing that type of solution. You will either need to consider a custom solution - or look to a 3rd party tool, such as ...

It needs a collection of users passed in, it can be done like so, You can use the SPFieldUserValueCollection Class to set a multi value person field: SPFieldUserValueCollection value = new SPFieldUserValueCollection(); value.Add(new SPFieldUserValue(web, user1.ID, user1.Name))); value.Add(new SPFieldUserValue(web, user2.ID, user2.Name))); ...

Yes! That is the point of workflows, they are not like you think with services where they have to stop whenever a server restarts, but it is processed in batches and states. For example, the action "Pause until date" the workflow will really resume whenever the date passes, even if it is 10 minutes afterwards.

Does it continue, using the updated date? Depending on your workflow, it could cancel altogether, but usually it will use the new updated value. Does it continue, using the old date? See above. Assuming either of the previous is true, is a new workflow spawned upon change? Depending on your workflow this can happen, but most users only trigger workflows ...

You can easily do so in SharePoint Designer workflow and check if the field contains data or not, you can then build a string in the designer calculated from all other fields and set the value for your field with your string. So yes that's doable.

In such cases it's better to use custom activities in Sharepoint Designer that allow you to implement business process you need. There are 2 ways of how to do it: 1. Code your own workflow activities using Visual Studio or 2. Use any of 3-rd party ready to use workflow activities for Sharepoint Designer. The one I've seen is Virto Sharepoint Workflow ...

You can do this without having to run any conditionals in your workflow. Create two workflows (one for item creation, one for item change) and go to the workflow settings for each one. Check Start workflow automatically when an item is created or Start workflow automatically when an item is changed.

You'd do If Created equals Modified do these actions Else do these actions. When an item is created, it has the same date for created and modified. Once an item is modified, they have different dates.

It will. When an item is paused like that, the information is serialized to the database and will get picked up by the workflow timer job when the time comes to wake up and do something. This has been the behavior ever since I can recall.

If this is a SharePoint Designer workflow, you can choose to get the display name out of the people picker field instead of the login name.

You are setting a value but not updating the item, I'd expect a .Update() in there. workflowProperties.Item["Stakeholders"] = acctId; workflowProperties.Item.Update(); Also, this may be affecting you: If your field "" is field on the Infopath form and you have chose that field to be available on the form library then one thing you should check is ...

The drop down shows all available tasks lists. If your site only has a Workflow Tasks, then that is what shows up. You'd just need to create a new task list with your desired name, and it should be available in that drop down. *Answer update: You can just select new task list and after it's created, you can change the task list name.

You could create a workflow to handle this. Instead of the alert, just trigger the workflow anytime an new item is added you would email a specific user and add the parameters for a hyperlink as well as document name. This is really easy to build in SharePoint Designer.

You can start the workflow using code. The code has to be triggered somehow. You could use an Event Receiver for when a document is either added or updated. If you need to be able restart a workflow by just clicking something. You could create an application page that does that. Populate a column with a hyperlink for each item. Reference: ...

Try to update your Workflow Manager 1.0 with CU2. Will resolve your problem, no need to change ID. (This CU2 update worked for me.)

I had the same issue in my work place. I tried to setup workflow to prevent conflict, but it actually deleted some of the booking's end time. So, now i have come up with an idea to solve this issue.I merged the sharepoint calendar into the outlook calendar. Now any user can easily add/edit booking without any conflict by looking into the outlook interface. ...

Yes, SharePoint can handle more than 1000 running workflow instances. Once the workflow engine spots an asynchronous activity to be executed next, the state of the workflow instance will be stored in the Database. It's called 'Workflow State Dehydration'. And based on external triggers/events(form button click, timer etc.), the state will be loaded back into ...

You need to execute Register-SPWorkflowService only once for the entire farm. I have many cases where this did not work though due to some other factors in addition to the Proxy issue mentioned in the earlier response. SharePoint web applications are using https and the root of their cert is not in Workflow Manager server trusted root authority (MMC ...
