Using SharePoint Designer 2010, I was wandering if it is possible to some how retrieve all of the documents inside a document set? I eventually want a workflow to run against all of these documents but I can't seem to figure out how I would go about retrieving them first.
There are quite a few limitations with SharePoint Designer 2010 that make it impossible to do this without resorting to a custom workflow action developed in Visual Studio:
- no ability to list of documents in a document set
- no ability to loop in SharePoint Designer 2010
- no ability to start a workflow from a workflow
All of these limitations can be mitigated with a little code in a custom action, but there is absolutely no way to do this with the standard out-of-box workflow actions.
