Try replicating the same workflow with another new list. I am sure the schema of the associated list would have been corrupted. for further troubleshooting purposes, insert an email sending task or some item updating task in b/w or as a first step with some dummy content so you can know whether it is firing the workflow events or not.

Making changes in the SharePoint designer usually does not update the workflow start options. Go to the site or the list workflow settings and Edit the workflow start options there. It should update the startup options then.

The assumptions above were correct. The issue actually turned out to be network related (the workflow needed the FQDN of the target host for the export). In my case, I was able to write the file to the network share (once the address for the remote host was corrected) without using SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivledges or any other special changes.

There is a step for this purpose. In SharePoint 2010 it called Impersonation step, in SharePoint 2013, it is called an App Step. Whenever a workflow is fired, it is run as the user who initiated the workflow, whenever it hits the app/impersonation step, anything inside the step is run as either the workflow account (2013), or the author of the workflow ...

I have encountered the same problem, There are a couple fixes, if you are using workflow 2013 then you can enable InfoPath custom forms in central admin (the exact steps are escaping me as I have just done that on our dev site so far) If you are using 2010 workflows (I assume this would work for 2013 workflows as well) the work around is to use explorer mode ...

Just to close this up -- Turns out the problem was indeed related to InfoPath, specifically the lack of InfoPath Services on the 2013 farm. The old 2010 farm was running SP 2010 Enterprise, and the farm the site was migrated to is running SP 2013 Foundation. So... no InfoPath Services available. Oops.

Sabir - I'm assuming you have a task process in your workflow that deals with the task assignment and steps. If you want to inject the value from a field in the task list item into the document library item that kicked off the workflow, you can do the following: Open up the task process in the workflow and, under Customization, click Change the behavior ...

If you are trying to update one field with all the attendees You can turn on "Append text" in the library setting for a multi line field. You then should be able to "set field in current" item to Current Item modified or created and it will append the new name. If you are updating a list with a new row for each attendee then use the "Create item" and find ...

Copy the option value in a string variable and then perform your conditions like "starts with". SharePoint will then give you options of every string manipulation and logical operators. Also I can suggest one more option, why not create a calculated field which is true or false depending on the option selected. You can create a formula which will be TRUE ...

Are you using InfoPath forms? If so I would put a rule on that field in the form that says "If equals "x" or "Y" or "Z" set field in form "Send email" to Yes. Then in your workflow do a lookup to the "Send Email" field.. The If statement becomes. If "Send email" equals "Yes" send email...

This is possible creating a list view in the Documents Library with the workflow related column, filtered by workflow status. This column will display a link for a page, listing the tasks. It's necessary add a step in the workflow to change your status when it's finished (to filter by this).

Workflows are triggered while creating or updating an item or they can be run manually. With SharePoint 2010 you have the option to Write a timer job to send out the email or start the workflow every day. Write a console application to run the workflow or send out the email and deploy it as a Windows Scheduled task.

First add an impersonation step to get elevated priviliges. In this step you will notice some extra actions for changing permissions. The "replace permissions" action allows you to replace all existing permissions with a set of your own. This automatically breaks permissions.

I see one error right off the bat - it's not what's giving you the error message, but I believe it may prevent the workflow from doing what you expect in a certain circumstance. Your check on isCreditHoldChanged is inside an Else If block, which means that if Sales Order Number and Credit Hold? were both changed, then Credit Hold? (Before) won't get set ...

Cause: This happens when the time zone of the server does not match the time zone of the site (or that of the user if they have set a time zone override preference).

This is the default behavior for SharePoint workflows because of the synchronous events which will be triggering in the back end. so as a workaround you need to have an conditional check on some hidden fields such as "flags" so it doesn't interrupt your actual requirement though it triggers another workflow event. say : if you set the flag to 1 on ...

Make sure that you have all the correct columns checked off within your Library view. If they are not checked off the data will not show up because it has nowhere to go. Also, make sure you made the form save underneath a specific title each time (you can use feilds to custimize your form name each time it is filled out.)

The workflow on a new item will only start if a user creates the item. When the system creates an item the workflow will not start automatically. This is done to prevent infinite number of items being generated in the Sharepoint list. Its a fail-safe of sharepoint. One possible work around is to make a single workflow with a pause and make it iterate on ...
