Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list

SharePoint Designer Workflow to email multiple recipients listed in a custom list


Hi all,

I created a workflow in designer attached to a form library. I also have a custom list "Admins" containing names of persons that serves a different purpose but would also like to be used as recipients for the workflow email everytime a new item in the form library is created.

I have been searching the net and tried out few work arounds but so far able to send to only one person in the "Admins" list. The list has a column "Admin Name" which is of type "Person or Group".

Thanks in advance!

how to send emails to multiple persons at the same time from sharepoint workflow using visual studio


Hi Every one !!

   I am trying to send copy of a document for multiple directors at my client for their approval.

   The director can approve the document at the same time.

   Hence, I would like to know how to create a task to send emails for multiple people at the same time from a sharepoint workflow using visual studio 2008.

   I see there is a parallel activity. But it gives me only 2 paths ( means would be able to send only for 2 users )

   If creating a separate task to send emails for each user is an inefficient way, please let me know if there is another good way of sending emails to multiple users.


Thank you

How to send a link to list item by email in SharePoint 2010?


With SharePoint 2007 list item display form is openned in broswer and user can either copy and paste the url and send the link by email or use the browser's "Page" button and click "Send the link by email" to send the link.

With SharePoint 2010 list item display form is openned in a dialog box, the browser doesn't show the list item url and the browser's "Page" button's "Send the link by email" just sends a link to the list not the list item.

We don't want to diable the dialog box either. Please help.

create task item with sharepoint designer workflow



I have an InfoPath form and a SharePoint forms library with a workflow. When I submit an InfoPath form to the forms library a workflow is triggered. Within this workflow I want to create an item in the task list. This is possible with the action in sharepoint designer wf "assign a to do item". But within this action the name of the task item is hardcoded.

Now I want to change the name of the task item. The name should be one field of my InfoPath form. I also want to set the due date of the task item.


Any ideas?

Cannot set the email from address (reply-to) in SharePoint Designer workflow

I have created several workflows for custom lists. Among other actions, they send out emails. It appears however, that they all use the same from-address. I would like to supply each of these workflows with different reply-to addresses.

Can I do that? After a lot of searching it appears that the only way is to create separate Web Applications, since the reply-to address is set on Web Application level. But that would require several extra web applications in my case, which again need their own site collections and sites.

I really, really miss a "From" field in the SharePoint Designer workflow "Send e-mail" action.

Best regards, Jan.

SharePoint Designer - Send external email


Hi guys.

This is my problem:

I have a SharePoint List Item with with two fields: the first is a people field (corp. users) and the second is a text field for email external customers. This customers have hotmail or gmail email addresses.

I designed a workflow with SharePoint Designer for notifying both users and customers when a list item is created. This workflow has a only one step: send an email.

For users in the company (in the corp. domain) the worflow works fine and send the email to the users and they can check the notifications; but for customers that has a external email (like hotmail or gmail) the workflow does not send the email.

I wrote the customer email (customer@hotmail.com) in the To: field in the send email action fo the workflow for testing and is not send the email to the customer. I´ve set the outgoing email on the farm.

Is it necesary an additional configuration? Can SharePoint designer send a email to users that has email from Hotmail and others?

Thanks for any help.


Publish a Workflow from SharePoint Designer takes more and more time



I started a workflow from scratch, and often while designing my workflow I save it & publish it to test it on my dev environment. However, the more I had actions, the longer it takes. I have now roughly 30 actions and condition (including Approval Process, Workflow Status and collect data), and it takes about 6 or 7 minutes to publish! Is this normal?

Send summary email on 1st of every month sharepoint workflow


Hi all ,

I have a situation where in I need to create a sharepoint workflow for Infopath Form Library to send out emails. But the condition is a little tricky. I need to send out one email only on 1st of every month consisting of single link or mulitple link for infopath records submitted for the person. Basically if somebody submitted 3 infopath forms for me in March, on 1st of April I should get one email notification with a summary of all 3 forms. Is this possible. If yes how?

Environment is WSS 3.0 wih Infopath 2007

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter


We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.


For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).


In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:


08/27/2007 13:49:43.24  w3wp.exe (0x0CA0)                        0x1438 Windows SharePoint Services    Workflow Infrastructure        72fs Unexpected RunWorkflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: <Error><CompilerError Line="1" Column="1" Text="The root activity type is invalid.&q

I can't send email from workflow.


I’ve got strange problem. I’ve created workflow with Visual studio 2008 which works fine. If workflow create task user gets email with alert and it works  - user gets email.   The problem is that I would like to use Workflow component: “SendEmail” for some cases. And if I enter directly into component email address for field: “TO” the message will be delivered. But if I use simple code with the same email address for field ”TO” it doesn’t work (field TO is empty now).

private void sendEmail_ExecuteCode(object sender, EventArgs e)
