As Karvannan said, you can call another SP2013 workflow via REST. However, if you are using SharePoint 2013 On-Prem, then be aware that you will require the May 2014 CU. I have tested this before with and without the patch in the past, and without it, the REST endpoints for this will not work. If you find yourself in the situation of not being allowed to ...

When you create a task in the workflow in SPD, simply change the content type to match the one that you want for that particular task. For instance, in the 'Start a Task Process' dialog, expand the 'Outcome Options' section and change the 'Task content type' as required. In the screenshot below, the highlighted portion is where you can select the ...

Could you not just create the link in the formula builder using the current item ID rather than the item url: http://www.ourcompanyname.intra/Lists/YOURLIST/DisplayForm.aspx?ID=[Add current item id here]

How about creating a workflow variable and store the value of %Workflow_Context:Current Item URL% and then create another variable and set it to equal your replace function and use the later variable in the Address?

You want to make sure the field is set to not to Refresh value when formula is recalculated. I assume this is enabled and would exhibit the behavior you are describing.

SharePoint uses the default URL for links in alerts and workflows that are automatically kicked off. The workflow system doesn't have any way of knowing which alternate access mapping any given user would use when logging into SharePoint, so it just builds the link using the Default zone since it has no other info to go on. Without diving into fully ...

Requirements are simple unless we make it complex My suggestion would be keeping it as simple as possible. You have 3 different steps, so better create 3 different list, and 3 different workflows. Reason: Making it different will make you ease in customization, new person(developer) coming in future can easily understand and modify the workflow. ...

You can pass data as suggested by others. I think you need to focus on getting the meta data + design right and use lookup values within the lists. E.g. If HR manager selects "New" employee why not have a _employmentStatus column either as a visible or as a hidden field. It's probably a useful bit of information so it could be visible. (you could have ...

I don't see any reason it wouldn't work as shown. Does it work in practice if you actually run it? That's the real test after all. ;)

I would use Create Item in List workflow action to pass data from one list to another. On each list, I'd start a workflow when the item is created. The workflow on the managers' list would create an item in the supervisors' list and email the supervisor the link. The workflow on the supervisors' list would wait until fields are filled out and then create an ...

I can think of two possibilities. One I've done in the past for a similar situation was to create custom list edit forms where the already entered information was in read only fields and the information to be collected had standard form fields. Then the workflow sent an email to each person along the way with a link to the appropriate custom form. The ...

Date fields are never truly empty, so the option doesn't exist. An "empty" date field is actually set to 1/1/0001. So for your specific project, forget the whole "storing the string values of the dates" thing, that won't work. Instead, set up the workflow to perform the action if both Date fields are greater than 1/1/0001.

The general rule is SharePoint workflows can only be opened with SharePoint Designer if the workflow was originally built with SharePoint Designer. This applies to both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 platform workflows.# Those workflows that are not built in SharePoint Designer, such as those built with Visual Studio, Nintex, K2, etc. - although most ...

Thanks guys for your ideas. In the end, I decided to go with the following approach: Remove all permissions from any user for the specific list. Create another user account for impersonation purposes. Give this new user contribute rights to the specific list. Web part will impersonate this user account during submit. This will ensure that the workflows ...

I am guessing you have to recreate it... SPD WFs which are not reusable are bound to the list using the "WorkflowAssociation" property in the Object Model. Maybe there is a way to read out this association and attach it to a new list. It may be easier to just recreate it :)

Since the workflow can be published elsewhere, perhaps it's a local issue. Have you tried clearing SharePoint Designer's cache? Close SPD2013 Delete everything at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache Delete everything at %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache Go to SPD2013 options –> General –> Application Options –> Uncheck the ...

You can write a workflow that runs on edit, pauses 24 hours, check conditions, and send a reminder. Then reset a flag which "edits" the item, relaunching the workflow. It's not the most reliable method, and you don't want to do this if you'll have large numbers of items this is running on. But with wss 3.0 you're fairly limited.

I found a solution to the question I asked myself. We can set a retention policy to start the workflow when the condition is met. I guess it's possible only in SP 2013.

I don't see any solution with SP 2010 workflow. Using SP 2013 you might be able to resolve. Solution is to create dictionary - A of the existing people picker control. Then take current user name in variable, user that initiated the workflow. Create another dictionary - B. Loop all items of dictionary A to find the match of current user in dictionary. If ...

Here's the deal. You can create a default view with access to only a specific user group. There are ways to implement this. Also, from all views, remove link for new item and remove column with context menu. Additionally you can put some javascript to not allow advance ribbon except admin group or something. Alternatively. You can put some javascript to ...

Came across your post with no answer, 4 years ago but thought i might be able to put one up for people in the future.

Cause Each client has a unique IP address. If the server defines a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the site and the IP address you are using is on this list, you will receive the error message.

As Patrick mentioned, you will not be able to start a SP2013 workflow through designer action. As an alternative, You can call a REST endpoint service to start your workflow in the same list or another list.

This is one of Microsoft's annoying "design features". The problem is that cannot enumerate the mailbox as a SharePoint user. To get around this, you can add the mailbox to the members group of a site and magically the workflow should stop giving errors that it cant send to that address. I have verified this using SP Online as I had exactly the same ...

It can be done, but you would need to rely on calling the REST API from a designer workflow. In plain words you would need to first make a call to the L2 list with the filter values. Once that is retrieved you can get the ID of the item in L2 and from there you can get the user in the L2 item. In your workflow start by creating a new dictionary which ...

I have never seen a solution move perfectly between environments. Even with columns provisioned via PowerShell using the same GUID between environments, SharePoint Designer workflows are notorious for breaking upon deployment.

The workflow association is probably not automatically copied with the variations mechanism. I guess you can prove this by deleting the list in a target and then try and recreate the list with the association by using variations. I also guess there is a difference between Sharepoint 2010 Workflows and Sharepoint 2013 Workflows and how they work with ...

SharePoint Designer workflows can be exported to solution files and then imported in a different Site Collection or a different SharePoint Farm.
