SharePoint leaving Assigned To field blank in a Workflow Task

  

Hi,

We are having an issue with occasional Tasks being created by a WF that have a blank Assigned to field.  Solution consists of:

  1. A form with a People picker field that allows the user to select and validate the Authoriser name.
  2. An Auto-start-on-New SP Designer workflow runs that does a "Collect Data from User action" and assigns the Task to the Authoriser.

Unfortunately, although this worked fine during dev and test, now the solution is live and we are having 150-200 requests per day, we are finding that the WF occasionally fails to fill in the Assigned To details when it creates the Task. (approx 8 failures per 200 requests, ie 4%).

As SharePoint already has the User data field, I am confused why this might fail, and there is no obvious pattern (same auth, 4 work OK then 1 failure). 
Does SP contact the AD again when it creates the Task?

Anything else I should investigate? any suggested fix / work-arounds?

How to get User group in SharePoint Designer 2010 within workflow?

Designer workflow + unable to edit task

  
I use the SPD to create a custom workflow which will assign to-do task to users. The workflow is attached to a list library in a subsite and users only have view-only permission to the subsite (users are added to the subsite directly, not inside any sharepoint group).  In order for users to complete the assigned task, I have broken the permission inheritance and change users to have contribute permission on the Task list.   The workflow would trigger as expected and a new task is created for the user. The user can see the "edit task" link in the task item but when clicked "edit task", an "access denied" error occurs.   Under further investigation, I notice access are granted for sharepoint group e.g. site visitors, site members on URL http://....../workflow/workflow_name/newtask.aspx , and only when I create the workflow under the site administrator account. If I create the workflow under an account which also has "Full Control" to the subsite, No access are granted to the workflow library at all.   What permission levels do I need to create workflows in designer really? Does it make a difference if the workflow is on a top-root site or subsite? Full control on the top-root site or subsite?   Thanks in advance.

Sharepoint 2010 WorkFlow Task AssignedTo Windows Group doesnt send email notification

MOSS 2007 - SharePoint Designer Workflow failing when using group vs individual user

  
I am creating a simple workflow in SharePoint designer that will email a selected user when a list is modified.  I am applying the condition "if modified by" in Designer.  This condition works fine and the email is sent when I select a specific user myDomain\username.  It does not work when I attempt to associate a SharePoint group with the "if modified by" filter. In my example the list has only one SharePoint group associated with it, this is the only group with permissions for the list.  The group contains multiple users. The workflow is successful with the following scenario: if modified by myDomain\user1 or if modified by myDomain\user2 The workflow fails with the follwoing scenario: if modified by mySharePointGroupName  (which includes myDomain\user1 and myDomain\user2) This would be an ungodly if statement with a large membership SharePoint group.  This would also be a nightmare as people leave the organization and their account credentials are left in the large if statement in the workflow.  Looking for the modified condition when associated with a group seems like the logical way of doing this. I also tried "myDomain\domain users" which accounts for all user in my domain, this failed as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

How to set an overload group on arguments in the workflow designer?

  

Hi,

I'm wondering how to set an overload group (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee358733.aspx) to arguments using the workflow designer. If I click on an argument in the Arguments tab in Visual Studio, the properties window shows a checkbox for the Required attribute, but no property for the OverloadGroup.

Is there a way to use overload groups in the designer?

Thanks in advance,
Jochen.


Custom Task form of a SharePoint Designer workflow is not displaying correctly

  

We have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer. We are using one action “Collect Data from a User”. As you know, this action sends an email to a user with a link to a task form where user is supposed to accept or reject a request. We are encountering following issues with this form:

  1. Form is not a workflow form, it is a task item of the task list that the “Collect Data from a User” action of the workflow creates.
  2. Form opens as an item of the workflow task list in View mode (DispForm.ASPX) instead of Edit mode (EditForm. ASPX)
  3. When user clicks on “Edit Item” button, it displays all the fields of the task as editable – we want only the Approve/Reject option buttons and the comments TextBox (that we created during the workflow design) to be displayed as editable

Can someone please explain what is going on and how can we resolve the above issues?
Thanks……….


How to assign values to workflow task person or group custom field?

  
Using visual studio 2008, in createTask_MethodInvoking, I have the following code. RequestFields has the values from the InfoPath form. ApprovingPersons is a person or group field, added to the task list by my custom task content type. I checked the task list associated with the workflow and I see the custom field.

SPUser user;
SPFieldUserValueCollection fuvc = new SPFieldUserValueCollection();
foreach (Contact person in RequestFields.Persons)
{
      user = workflowProperties.Web.EnsureUser(person.LoginName);
      fuvc.Add(new SPFieldUserValue(workflowProperties.Web, user.ID, user.Name));
}

// this is the line causing problem, I believe
PreApprovalTask_TaskProperties.ExtendedProperties["ApprovingPersons"] = fuvc;

I got the following error message:

at System.RuntimeMethodHandle._InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] arguments, SignatureStruct& sig, MethodAttributes methodAttributes, RuntimeTypeHandle typeOwner)
   at System.RuntimeMethodHandle.InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] argument

Thanks,

SharePoint custom workflow sending duplicate task assigned emails

  

I'm running into an issue where a custom sequential workflow I've built in VS2010 is sometimes sending duplicate emails to the user to whom created tasks are assigned. Note: this is a Site workflow not a List workflow, in case that matters.

It's a pretty simple flow: i've got an InfoPath initiation form, and am using an OnWorkflowActivated workflow action to take the data from the form and popluate some workflow variables, then I've got a CreateTask workflow action that sets the AssignedTo value on the Task Properties, along with some other Task Property values.

The task gets created successfully in the task list, and in most cases a single email goes out to the person the task is assigned to. However, sometimes (and I haven't been able to figure out what is causing the difference) up to 3 duplicate messages are sent out, as well.

I've seen other posts in the forums where this sort of thing is happening with OOTB workflows ( this thread, for example: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointworkflow/thread/66f94e07-a690-4166-aaeb-b7f5bc424fe4?prof=required). However, duplicate tasks are not being created (unless I'm missing the duplicates somehow -- they're not showing in the task li

create task item with sharepoint designer workflow

  

Hi,

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?

thx

 


SharePoint Workflow and Permission Problems - User cannot edit assigned task

  
I've seen numerous posts on here talking about the same problem we're having, but the solutions listed in those do not work for us. So I apologize for reposting this subject, but we're getting desperate.

We have a custom workflow that is assigning a task to a user, then that user is clicking "edit the task" and getting access denied.  We've broken permission inheritance on the document library where the workflow is kicked off, the task list, and the workflow list (accessing through permissions in SPD) and given the user having the issue full control of these lists and libraries. This results in the user still getting access denied. When we add the user to the Owners Group of this particular site, the user can edit the task with no error message. This isnt' a solution of course as we cannot have the user in the owner's group.

We have custom workflows on several of our SharePoint sites and have never had this problem before. We've now spent a combined total of 6 hours on the phone with Microsoft Support and no one can tell us what the problem is. Help!

How to determine the user that completed a task when the task is assigned to a group?

  
I am using collect data from a user in a custom workflow.   I am assigning it to a group.   Where is the user stored that actually completes the task?
