How can I edit the link to the document in a Approval Task email?


With the 2010 out of the box Approval workflow, the emails and tasks work just great, however, when a user receives the email, the instructions look like this:


To complete this task:
2. Perform the specific activities required for this task.
3. Use the Open this task button to mark the task as completed. (If you cannot update this task, you might not have access to it.)


Currently, we are using a friendly url for our users, in order to access their SharePoint site.  The <LINKED DOCUMENT> when clicked on, gives them an error and doesn't take them to the actual document in the SharePoint site, because of the fact that we are using a different url name for the site.

If there any way I can edit this auto-generated email so that the links will always be to the friendly url of our SharePoint site with each document?


Thanks in advance!

Using InfoPath Repeating Table in Task Edit form

I need to develop an InfoPath Task Edit form. The form will be used for the approval of the expense reports. I want the users to see the content of the expense report directly on the InfoPath form without clicking on the link and viewing it in a separate window.

I wonder if I can stick the expense report data which is a list into the extended properties of the task and then bind it to InfoPath Repeating Table?

SharePoint 2010 Approval Workflow email is not showing link to Workflow Task list



I have created an out of box Approval workflow in SharePoint 2010. I am receiving email with below information

Task assigned by Chinna Malipedu on 10/7/2010.

Due by 1/1/0001

Approval started by Chinna Malipedu on 10/7/2010 11:43 AM
Comment: Approve



To complete this task:
1. Review SharePoint2010.
2. Perform the specific activities required for this task.
3. Use the Open this task button to mark the task as completed. (If you cannot update this task, you might not have access to it.)

But I need to go to Workflow Task List by clicking 3 item "Use the Open this Task" , this is not a link here

or I want like "Edit this task to mark the task as completed."  Edit this task should link to Task List

How to do this? do i missing any configuration?

I have successfully done the same  in MOSS 2007.                                                               Is there  any extra&n

Setting Task Field Values in Custom .aspx Edit Form and accessing through ExtendedProperties


Since we're using WSS 3.0 and not MOSS 2007, we have to create and use ASP forms for any custom Workflow Task Edit pages instead of being able to use InfoPath forms (which would be nice...maybe some day we'll step up to MOSS). The custom Workflow Edit Pages are used for custom Task Content Types that we create so that our Workflow Tasks can have additional fields beyond the standard Workflow Task fields. Once you've collected the values for the Task fields from the user on the ASP Workflow Task Edit form, the typical procedure is to create a hashtable and fill the hashtable with key/value pairs that represent the names of your Task fields and their associated values, as such:

// This function is called when the user clicks the Save/Submit button
// on the Custom Task Edit ASP form
public void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  // Create a hashtable that will be used to update the values of task fields
  Hashtable taskHash = new Hashtable();
  // For each field, create two values in the hashtable. If the field name 
  // matches a field in the Task content type, the field name will not be 
  // searchable as a key within the ExtendedProperties hashtable. So 
  // create a second field that is a duplicate of the first but having a 
  // name that doesn't exactly match an existing field in the Task 
  // content type. That way it will be a searchable ke

New/Edit Default Form Link for InfoPath Created Forms


I've created 2 forms using InfoPath (Edit & New).  Both forms publish correctly, however I would like the "New" form to display by default when a user creates a New list item, and the "Edit" form to display (by default) when a user attempts to Edit an existing item.

Currently, Each form is available, but the New Form displays by default for either action.  The get the Edit form, the user has to select the the Edit form from the View dropdown box.  I'd really rather not have the dropdown box at all, and simply open the correct form per the action requested by the user.


Designer Workflow email and Task Edit URL



I have a custom SharePoint Designer workflow. Once this email gets trigger, it sends a standard task email with link to edit task list to approve/reject the current item. But this standard email does not have enough information, so I want to send a custom email with link to task edit form.

The standard task email will have link which will look similar to this:

The URL will look similar to: http://webserver/_layouts/WrkTaskIP.aspx?List=b0320c4f%2Df791%2D4a9c%2D9b6f%2D3f1eef448fe5&ID=1000

In my custom task email, how do I get the ID value(the last parameter) to form the task edit link?

Thanks in advance.





Creating an Email Alerts to Task Assigned user to edit the task from Email


When we use the out of the box wf in sharepoint lets say Document approval then it sends an email to the assigned user where user can edit the task with in email, they don't have to come back to Sharepoint to edit the task.

I am looking for a way so that i can send email to the user with the controls in the custom task forms. So that they can just Complete the task from email. they dont have to come back to sharepoint task list to edit and complete the task.

Is there any workaround for this.

SharePoint 2007 - How to associate a Custom List View with a Custom Edit Form. Edit link always re


Can someone give me a clue of how to connect a specific Custom List View with a custom Edit Form.

I have created a custom list, and I have created a custom view attached to that list.   I also have a custom CustomEditForm.aspx form created using SharePoint Designer.

I want to associate the Custom Edit form directly with one and one view only for a given list so that when the user clicks the edit icon in that view, they are linked to the custom Edit Form.  But all other views including the All Items view behave as normal, i.e. using the normal EditForm.aspx.

I can replace the EditForm.aspx in the Url with my custom form and it works fine, but I can't seem to figure out how to connect the custom view edit link to the custom form.  It always takes me back to the default EditForm.aspx page.

I have investigated the href="{$URL_Edit}?ID={@ID}" onclick="GoToPage('{$URL_Edit}?ID={@ID}') in code, which appears to  be how the URL is generated but I'm not sure how or where best to set the value of URL_Edit parameter so that I point to the custom Edit Form.  This is somehow getting passed into the custom view, but I'm not sure how best to set it for a specific non-AllItems view.

spd2007 - basic form and email


I'm using spd2007 and have created a very basic form to collect data. I've also set it up to send off an email. When I go to the moss2007 site and use the form it appears to be working fine. However, I never receive an email from the workflow. I checked my logs and don't see anything logged about the email not working.

Any suggestions?

Updating Task Lists and Form Libraries From Workflow Form


There are actually two separate (I think) problems here. The scenario: I used the SharePoint Designer 2007 to create a workflow attached to a form library. When a form is submitted to the library, a To-Do-Item is created on a task list. The To-Do-Item is initially assigned to a GROUP. A user from the group then selects the name of an individual from a choice list in edit item. This person now becomes the Assigned To for the task.

What is needed is 1) To update the Assigned To column of the Form library when someone in the GROUP assigns the task to an INDIVIDUAL; and 2) To have the Due Date from the submitted InfoPath form propagate to the task list.

I've tried having one workflow try to do everything and also having a secondary workflow set up on the task list to do the task assignment update but have not been successful in solving either issue. I don’t think that I am really understanding how to Define Workflow Lookup when not working with the Current Item. I know what fields I want but I don’

InfoPath Workflow Task Form "Loading" event handler only being called after App Pool recycled.


I have a Workflow that is using an InfoPath task form.  In the "FormEvents_Loading" method event handler I have some code that needs to run each time the form is opened.   I recycle the App Pool and open the form the code runs perfectly, but if I close and try to re-open the form the code is not run at all.  I can then recycle the App Pool again and on the next load the code executes just fine.   The code that is supposed to be run is a very simple statement to set a field value, so I don't think it is interfering.

Does anyone know what this might be?


Reg: Turn on more accessible mode & Skip to main content link message on Infopath2007 browser form



I have a infopath 2007 browser enabled form with c# code behind . The Infopath form is embeded\hosted in to a custom layouts page (.aspx) on MOSS 2007. The issue is when users use keyboard to fill the form, they often use <TAB> & <Enter> keys. So when they are using the tabbing at one location in the form, I have a "Contact selector" field, I enter a name & then hit <TAB> key the focus now comes to "name cheker" I then hit <Enter> key, I hit <TAB> again, the focus now comes to a button named "Accept", I hit <Enter> key & a filed below is populated with the values from user profile service. Now when I hit <TAB> I expect the focus should now come to that automatically populated field below the "Contact selctor". Because Infopath assings the tab order by default form top to bottom & left to right and I havent changed that default tab order.   

But, the focus moves to top of the webpage with a clickable link to "Turn on more accessible mode" I hit tab one more time & the link on top changes to "Skip to main content". This bheaviour does not seem to be happning in other form controls when they hit <Tab>, <Enter>. There are couple of areas on the infopath form where I have such a controls (layed ou
