how to deploy a workflow design in SharePoint Designer 2007 in a list from development server to production server.
i create a workflow in a list with SPD 2007 . I want to deploy it to production server who i can do this.
We have created a custom workflow in SPD that is attached to a document library within a MOSS 2007 teamsite.
The workflow is set to trigger when a new item is created in the document library.
Previously, the workflow has worked fine for all users but recently has stopped working for one user only.
For the problem user, what we are seeing is that when a new item is created in the document library, the attached workflow never starts. There is no error, the workflow just does not get triggered. However, if the problem user goes to an item
in the document library and clicks on the workflow she can manually start it and it works fine with no error.
This user has the same permissions on the site as others who do not have any problem.
In the course of investigating this problem, we have temporarily increased the problem users permissions on the document library to full control (was contribute before) but this has had no effect on the problem. Authentication is being done via Active
Directory. We have tried removing the user from the site and re-instating her but again this has no impact.
Does anyone have any idea how we could fix this problem or further debug it?
I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".
I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in
the To field.
I am modifying a SharePoint site and so far so good. Some of the objects were created using Visual Studio 2008 (C#). I was able to modify these objects and implement them on the targete machine without issue. The final step is to implement
the ASPX pages that were modified using SharePoint Designer 2007. These are aspx pages that are used to modify items in lists. All the pages involved in this upgrade are customized. I need to upgrade the target site with the modified version
of these pages. My intent is to copy the code from the page in the source site and past it into the same page on the target site. I tried using the Remote Web Site connection tool in SharePoint Designer 2007 but received the following error message:
"Unable to open 'https://(site address)'. Server Error: Could not find a Web server at 'website'. Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly. If you are sure that everything
is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service."
I am not sure how to first check to see if the Web Server is temporarily out of service. I would appreciate your input on how to verify this.
Background information of target machine: WinServer 2008, IIS 7, Sharepoint (MOSS2007), site on port 80
our sharepoint server needs to be restarted twice a day now - always around 9.30am and 14.30pm. this has only started in the last 2 weeks. its working along fine then all of a sudden it goes to a dead page.
i have spent the last week trying to identify what it is. i have set the logging to verbose and put plenty of the messages in there into google but can not see anything relevant. the event viewer shows nothing.
i have sp2 installed but no cumalitve updates. i am wary of installing these at the mo and wreaking the whole thing. if noone has any suggestions ill install them. ill list soem details about the problem below.
it doesnt happen on weekends so it must have something to do with users using the system so im thinking something to do with the database (SQL Server 2000). NB users dont use our sp2007 on weekends.
if i restart iis, the layout of the page comes back but some of the webparts are dead so that doesnt work.
if i resart sql server, that doesnt work either.
there is plenty of room on drives and the task manager is at 20-30% when i check it when the site is down.
only a server resart seems to work.
there are just so many messages in the sp logs that i cant identify what it could be. is there any other loggi
