Not directly, I am also not aware of any add-ons that will accomplish this. You can access the workflow file (will have a .xaml extension) via SharePoint Designer. You can export this and open it in notepad or any editor that supports XML files. You can probably grab some of this from there, but you will still end up modifying the text output. You dont ...

SharePoint contains a hidden Site Column called ItemChildCount. This Site Column stores the calculated number of child items that the folder contains.

I had the same requirement. I solved it by writing the condition as "if less than 1/1/1900 12:00:00 AM". Here is a screenshot from my workflow.

The problem is that you probably did not publish the WF template in the first place. There are 2 possible solutions: 1.Publish the WF template before saving it in the source 2.In the destination, after activating the solution, open the WF template with SPD and publish it

Here is the solution: Challenges: The requirement needs to be achieved only using Out of the Box solution. And SPD workflow does not give any feature to scan multiple list items. Solution: Since MOSS 2007 SPD Workflow has very few actions, we can not achieve the whole solution using SPD Workflow. So we need to populate the List Item so that most of the ...

You should use SharePoint Designer, it's free and very easy to use. Tell to workflow to check some field when the status is XXXX, so you can tell to send an email. If you need to collect some feedback, SP Designer has collect feedback feature.

Based on the dates I see in your screenshot, it is probably the workflow history cleanup job that removes the workflow history associations after 60 days. I wonder if this job was disabled on your 2010 environment and not on 2013. See here for more details: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662522(v=office.14).aspx

This typically needs to be done by creating a second, hidden, column for the previous status. When your workflows complete, it updates this hidden field to the current status. Then when the item is edited, you put in your first step to check if the status column equals your hidden status column. If it does, you terminate the workflow. If it does not, you ...

You can use the same script in your description, but have it run nightly, to pick up any new document libraries.

Have you tried re-creating everything from scratch (i.e. don't use list templates)? How about adding servername and 127.0.0.1 in your hosts file?

How about an entry in that server's Hosts file? When the WF does a lookup, it's calling a URL. That xxx.com you mentioned could probably use entering in that server's Hosts file that has the workflow "failing". If this is a single-server farm, just mark it with 127.0.0.1. It could be trying to go to http:\\servername instead of ...

Each task outputs a variable that holds the list item id of the associated task.

If you need to use a workflow it can be done using SharePoint designer workflows. I am guessing you do not have SharePoint designer.

You have the workflow set to start on change, and something in that workflow changes that list item. This would create a loop which SharePoint does not allow. See if your logic allows you to use only "start on creation" instead. If not, you can work around this by bouncing workflows between two lists.

I don't understand why there is so much confusion about how to implement a custom workflow action (I'm confused as well). I found numerous guides on how to do this and they all required deployment to the GAC and registering smart controls in the Web.Config. I couldn't get this to work. Then I found a blog with steps on how to implement a custom action in ...

There are different ways for your requirement . If you have a visual studio with C# expertise , with custom coding you can create an event receiver with item added event .

This worked for me: 1) Make sure the Workflow Manager Client is installed on ALL the farm servers. 2) If you have already registered with your SP2013 farm and designer is not showing it, then perhaps re-registering with a different -Scope option for Register-SPWorkflowService might help

Without access to Designer to create a workflow, your best bet would be to use an alert on the list. The alert can be configured to send an immediate email when an item is added to a certain individual(s). It will contain all the list item data as well as a link to the item. I don't really like the alters myself, but given your situation, this would be the ...

There are alot of advantage / dis advantages of this. One of the draw back is. Emails are not getting into the SharePoint,Because they stored in the exchange. This means you can’t treat it as a SharePoint object and include it as part of a business process i.e workflow. Alternate way is enable the incoming emails for document library.

I ended up rebuilding the list, at which point I had the option to look up the field using the 'Workflow Lookup for a User' and 'Current List' option.

depending on your default value for checkbox, you can add css to your dropdown. say for e.g. by default checkbox is unchecked and hence your dropdown should be invisible on page load, you can customize form in SPD, and add css to the td to hide it (display:none), and now in js, you can add logic to show hide based on the user selection.

You could try to tweak the workflow URL to look like this: http://server/site/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?XmlLocation=http://server/site/list/document1234566.xml&DefaultItemOpen=1&ClientInstalled=true This should force SharePoint to open the XML either in InfoPath Forms Service or client InfoPath.

Workflows have to fire on the creation or edit of something or manually. So in your case, the submission would create a temporary list item, then delete itself after it's done if you no longer need it. It might behoove you to not delete it incase there are errors on the Powershell side, you could come back and manually trigger the workflow again. Edit: It ...

I'm assuming SharePoint 2010, but you can use the parallel blocks in order to do this. Make sure each chain stops the workflow if it completes so that the other side stops.

This may not be the most optimal of efficient solution, but it's a workaround that could work.
