New Item Added to List/Library trigers Alert to non-AD Security Group

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am trying to implement an alert when a new item is added to a list. Idealy this alert would be sent to either a SharePoint Group or a AD Distribution Group. I do not have access/authroization to create security groups. The research I have found so far tells me that I can only add AD users and AD mail-enabled security groups through the alert GUI. My questions is first is this a valid finding? Second, if I create a custom workflow can I have the workflow triger on new item added and have it send a notification to the specified SharePoint/Distribution group? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Item/Document permissions affect Library/List permissions

When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

Create list item in library - Output variable



I want to create workflow in SPD, that create new item in document library.

I use Create list item on library (output to Variable:create)

The documenty was created sucessfully, but the output didn't return the ID of item created.

In the documentation says, that function return the ID of item created.

Is maybe some other way, to get the ID of new created item in document library.

I created a SharePoint Page.  I then inserted an XsltListViewWebPart web part via SharePoint Designer 2010.  I then modified the CAML to include a couple of filters.  I then added a start date and end date parameter.  Then I saved my page and went into SharePoint.  I added two date filters (start date and end date) and I connected them to the  XsltListViewWebPart web part.  Then I selected a start date and end date and the list is correctly filtered.  The list is grouped by district and location.  However, when I expand the district and then I expand the location, it says "Loading...." but then it never loads anything.  If I change it to Collapse="FALSE" everything works fine???  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How to update list item with same title and the name of a library?



I'm a newbie to VS and SP Development and thus asking for some help from the community.

I'd like to be able to update a list item from a workflow running on a library, the list item title is the same as the library name. 

Environment is SP2010 Ent. VS 2010.

I have imported a workflow from SPD into VS2010 and I would like to add some code using Linq to update another list.  The query will be something like:

update list item where title is equal to current item list title. 

I'm OK with the easy bit - writing the Linq code and adding the Linq context file etc.  But I don't know where I need to add the update statement.

The import has created a lot of files, the largest of which is the .rules file with about 7000 lines of code.  The placing of the code should be straight forward as I want it to be last thing to happen in the workflow depending on a current item value.

Therefore can anyone help with regards to where in the project I need to put my code?

Thanks in advance.

Security Briefs: Access Control List Editing in .NET


Access control lists (ACLs) can be complex beasts, and user interfaces for editing them are incredibly tricky to implement properly. That's why I was really excited when Windows® 2000 shipped with a programmable ACL editor, shown in Figure 1.

Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item



I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.  I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.  I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.  I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).  I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.  When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.  The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.


I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.


I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.  It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.


I have checked my security and I have fu

Assigning users when creating a list item in a workflow


I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.  When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.  When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.  How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?  Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?
