This is an old question but still exists on SharePoint Designer 2010. At least to me! This ocurred to me: I had a list with 2 workflows, lets name it "List A" I copied List A to another site (using Sharegate*) and created "List B" List B contained the 2 workflows (lets name them Workflow X and Y). So far, so good. Updated a link on one of the workflows ...

First off, I assume you are building a Farm Solution since you can not provision any files to the SharePoint System Folders using a Sandbox Solution. Secondly, you shouldn't be using a Module to do this. If you really need to add a file to the Features folder (which I'm 99% sure you don't since I've never seen any example of having to do this in eight years ...

When you change existing structure of the workflow your old running workflows will fail at the time they rehydrate. This happens because the your old item's workflow definition is not match with the latest definition. The option is you need to keep the old workflow and publish the workflow as new workflow. Then go to the list -> workflow settings and set no ...

If you examining the Stack Trace carefully you will see HTTP 404 error. Which means you gets not found error. I believe you don't have sufficient access to the resource. Have you broken the security inheritance of the list ? Try whether you can see the list item by login to the particular site or app ( in your case item id 19)

I have resolved this problem. It was more of an Outlook problem than a SharePoint problem. I had an Outlook rule that was set up to catch another incoming email and file it away. The same rule was catching the emails I received from this workflow and filing them in the same place. I checked with a coworker and he was not getting the emails either. I ...

It may be related to the permissions on the task list associated with the workflow. Workflows have two related lists: one for tasks, one for workflow history. If the list you have the approval workflow is not inheriting permissions from the parent, check the permissions on these two lists.

If I'm right in understanding you, you have created a custom content type that is being applied to your Task List for a 2013 workflow. However, your custom outcome choices are showing up as a dropdown, instead of as buttons. Two fields are required to make the outcome field work properly: % Complete Task Status Make sure that neither of these have been ...

Finaly, I decide to install the english version of Sharepoint Designer 2013 with SP1. Using this version of Sharepoint Designer, when I add the same variable inside the same email in the same workflow, it works! When I trigger the workflow and I look inside the mail sent, I can see the value of my variable. So it really looks like a problem with the ...

I think there is no straight answer. For common branding and site provisioning scenarios here is some info: Using Apps. If you look closely to Microsoft Office 365 Patters and Practices (o365 Pnp) guidance most of samples is demos or presentations is to use provider hosted apps. There you have your own pages with CSOM and you can do quite a lot (set master ...

In SharePoint 2013 workflows there is an option to Call HTTP Web Service. I am working out the details now. In theory since a list can be POSTed to via REST one should be able to POST across sites.

There's a fairly easy way to hide or disable controls based on permissions. See this blog post. Basically, you set up a second list and give everyone read access to it, then you create an item (perhaps put "Yes" as the title) and remove permissions for that item from everyone except for the approvers so that only they can see that item. Then you add that ...

Nevermind, found documentation on the matter. Here is a script to run to find the publicKeyToken for your assembly from the .snk file http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepointdeveloperdocs/archive/2010/11/05/quick-tip-find-the-four-part-name-for-an-assembly.aspx

Exact same think is happening to me - from what I have read it is due to the fact the site is custom. I have updated the forms via site ID and URL and they are now working fine but the 2013 workflows are not working. The old workflows have no list association. Researching a way to resolve this but nothing as yet.

All Users is probably not an email enabled group. As far as I know you can send emails to email groups that have been defined in Active Directory, but not to all users authenticated to SharePoint. Check if your Active Directory contains such a group and use that.

The problem lies as you are updating Title with Name, the .aspx extension is also getting appended.

(NOTE: There are a couple of semi-advanced front end things you'll need to know if you aren't an experienced user, I've noted those in 5 and 7) You'll most likely need to be a site owner for the site you want to do this on if you're going to do everything yourself. You'll also need SharePoint Designer 2013 and InfoPath 2013 for your local machine (local ...

In either Designer or Visual Studio Create a function or reusable/custom activity that you pass x number of dates to and it passes back either the highest or lowest date which you then assign to a variable.

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 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.

However, there is another way to handle your problem using a list and placing the document as attachment. This only if you do not need any feature on the document (versioning, approval etc). This is a workaround if you want to avoid depending on a workflow. I have tested and if you send the link to a person that does not have rights to view the entry, even ...

There is a workflow feature in the standard SP designer 2010 template (you have it if you are on sp 2010 or 13 or online, you do not have it if you are on SP 2007) called impersonation step.

If the lookup allows multiple values you can check if it is equal to {"results":null}, which is the JSON string that will be returned when the field is empty (for SharePoint 2013 at least).

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.

In my case, which was similar to yours, I had a "Next" button at the bottom of the Workflow Settings page. As it was based on a generic Approval WF, it just had generic properties after that to edit, such as who it was to route to, to be approved.

You can use the Dom/debug in the browser(press F12) then find the 'name =" "' atribute of the column. Then use that name with Spservcies.

I think you might need an "else" clause to finish your step. IF "ApprovalStatus" equals "approve" Then "assign task" to "Deborah" ELSE "stop workflow" Otherwise, it doesn't know what to do if your form is rejected, so it defauts to assigning.

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.

I have to create a workflow with elevated permissions by using the SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform. By default, workflow does not have permissions to access the app request catalog. Catalog lists in SharePoint require owner (full control) permissions. Workflows generally run at permission level equivalent to write. To solve this, you have to create a ...

You are not using the "LOOKUP VALUE" of the person field. Each person field is really a lookup column to the user information list of the site collection. Your number is the ID of the lookup. You need to return the field as something other than string.

Since a date field defaults to 1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM, to check for null dates set the workflow to check to see if the specified field date is less than the Created date. If the date field is less than the Created date then you know the field is empty.

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.

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 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.
