SharePoint Workflows

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have a project that will require various managers to signoff on different documents.  I think that SharePoint Workflows are what I need, but it looks like it is anything but straightforward. 1.  I've placed document A into a SharePoint library. 2.  I need manager Z to either approve or reject the document. 3.  If manager Z ignores my request for approval, I want manager Z nagged about it until manager Z approves or rejects it. 4.  I need a log that will let me prove that manager Z was notified on mm/dd/yy and approved/rejected document A on mm/dd/yy SharePoint should be able to do this, but I can't figure out how.  This is using SharePoint 2010, Standard version.

SharePoint Development Problems and Issues with Workflows - New to Forum - Can someone help? :)

  

Please forgive me if this is posted in the incorrect forum, but I didn't see another that was a better fit.  We are on SharePoint 2007.  Here are the following items that I've asked our in house SharePoint people to answer and they have not been able to.

1)      When in a workflow an email notice is sent to multiple people that a document needs to be reviewed is there a way to do the following:

a.       If notice is sent to 4 people and person #2 accepts the task, can a file be “checked out” or “locked” in some way so that the other three people cannot edit the document or accept the task?  Is there a way to notify the other three that that person #2 has accepted the task?

Sharepoint Designer 2007 - Workflows stopped and can't create custom NewForm or custom EditForm

  

Everything was working great until the last few days when I made the SP site more robust. I am now ready to create a custom New Form so that my "requestor" doesn't have to deal with all of the fields. I want to create a custom Edit List so that I can hide all of the flags that get tripped while completing workflows. This morning I tried to create the NewForm (as I have done in the past) but nothing loads. I tried creating it with a different list, and it loaded fine so I know it has something to do with my list. I tried executing workflows so that I might be able to narrow down the problem, but now no workflows work even though they did a couple of days ago.

One of the items added as a "pause until" workflow. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. I also have roughly 85 fields. I haven't seen anywhere on the blogs that the number of fields is an issue but you never know.

Can anyone help? Please?


SharePoint Custom Workflows - Transfering Attachments From One List To Another?

  
We are trying to use a more in depth version of the Sales Lead Pipleline Template where we convert Leads to Opportuinities and then Once the Opportunity has been won it transfers the info into a Job List (Custom List) and a Work Order Assignment List (Custom Task List). We are storing the attachments related to each lead/opportuinity in the lists as well and want them to transfer with the workflow when the new list item is created after we hit the convert button. I am using SP Designer and have really modified the site and workflow but when i set the attachment settings in the workflow then return to the list and test the workflow to verify that the attachments are transfering with the rest of the data, i get an error occured on the workflow and none of the data is transfered.

Can anyone help me with this?
