My Situation:

I have two Worfkflows(List)
enter image description here

I have two Lists
enter image description here
"Genehmigung" is the tasklist for the workflow
"Teamkalender" is the calender

I have a calender who everybody can use in my company.
So if someone create a Element, it starts a workflow which assign a task to a specific person. This assignment create a Element in the workflow-tasklist(Genehmigungen).

Now i created the Button "Stornieren" in the Displayformular for the Calender elements. This Button starts another Workflow which should delete the Element in my tasklist(Genehmigungen). I use "delete item in THIS list" because it is the other list.

My Problem is, that i dont know which field i can use for the datasource-identification

I hope you can help me.

If you click on THIS LIST link you'll get all the lists in the site. Later of course you need to identify the record in the other list.

  • If - when you are in SPD in the WF - you choose "delete", you get "this list" linked. Clicking on this link opens a popup window with a selector, by default on "Current item". If you click on "current item" you'll have a list of options and all lists in the site available there.

  • Yeah. But if i a choose another List, i must identify my Element and thats the Problem. There are a lot of Elements in the other List. so yeah i must identify which element from the other list i need. But how!?

  • Of course you need some data to hook it. I can imagine there is some logic that ties the data in the current list and its correspondent to be deleted. Otherwise you have to use a manual input creating a parameter (Initiation from parameter) which will prompt user to give the data you need.
