Modify User in Collect Data from User Workflow

  

I've created a workflow with a Collect Data from User action that emails a Group when the task is created. Once the task is claimed by an individual, the Assigned To column in the task list is updated to display that person's name but once the task is completed the email variable for the action is not updated and the group is emailed instead of the person listed as Assigned To.

So the question is this: Is there a way to update the user varialbe in the workflow task once the task is completed, or would I need to build my own workflow and use the Send Email action?


Pass Data between 2 WorkFlows

Share Point Designer 2007 Workflow (Sequential) - multi-collect data from user

  
I am currently building a multi-step workflow using ShrePoint designer for MOSS2007. I am getting a bit confused as to if I have an error or if I am doing something incorrect. Here is what I have going. My workflow consists of something similar to the following New document comes in, a collect data from user routine is ran and assigned to a reviewer. My understanding when I create a collect data from user WorkFlow step is any data I request is saved in the "Tasks" list. Therefore I need to grab the workflow task ID in order to later lookup what the reviewer submitted... I understand this...   However, I have one more collect data from user workflow step and I have one more item to collect. Even though this is a brand new collect data from user workflow step - does the collected data still go into the "Tasks" list? In other words, if I have two steps in a workflow and both of these steps are "collect data from user", does the data from both steps go into the same "Tasks" list?  I could see how this might be possible as long as the Task list columns contain all the items for all the different "collect" data from user steps.  I don't see two different Tasks lists representing or named "Reviewer" or "Final" or anything, so I assume the items are all in "Tasks"   However..

Collect Data from a user task error

  
Hello, I am a new admin and I'm hoping you can help. I have used the Collect Data from a user Action in a workflow in Designer. I get no errors in saving or publishing. My workflow works find and sends me the task assignment as an email when I test. However, I then run into three problems which (together or separately) prevent me from moving forward in the workflow. 1) When I click the "edit task" button located in the task email, my entire Outlook locks up and must be restarted. (I am using outlook 2007 and Sharepoint Foundation 2010) 2) The email says in step 3 to use the "Open the Task" button to mark the task complete. I cannot find this button anywhere. 3) When I go directly into the task, I can view it but I can find no way to "complete" the task without editing it directly. This gives me an error window that says, "Type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.SPDataSource' does not have a public property named 'UseServerDataFormat'. "

Collect data from a User - Validation Bug

  

Hi,

 

I use the action "Collect data from a User". I add a new field of the type Choice, the next step I write two choices:

 

Approved
  Rejected

 

and configure it:

 

Default value is blank
  Display as: Radio Buttons
  uncheck Allow Fill-in choices
  uncheck Allow blank values

 

Click Finich button

 

When the task is created I need to choose among Approved or Rejected, however if it be not chosen any alternative the validation doesn't work.

 

If I have a field text the validation works perfectly.

 

Is there a bug in validation form when the field is a "Choice type" ?

 

Please help-me.


Collect Data From User in Sharepoint 2010

  

Hi,

I am trying to run a task where I collect data from a user, simple YES/NO choice selection, within SPD.

I have created the workflow and it does run, however the Output to returns the List Item Id, which is fine, I understand this is the Task ID.

But I cannot work out how to get the result from my YES/NO to use further in the workflow so as to change the status of another list item.

I have read the guide for 2007 (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-designer-help/collect-data-from-a-user-in-a-workflow-HA010209808.aspx#BM5) but this guide does not follow for SPD 2010.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a guide/example or explain what I am missing.  I would prefer to be able to complete this task within SPD, rather than VS2010.

Thanks in advance
Andy

Sharepoint Designer 2010 - Collect Data from User Issue

  

I am currently running Sharepoint 2010 Foundation and Sharepoint Designer 2010

I am creating a custom workflow where I am asking 1 user for input using collect data from user.  Following this I am asking a different user the same question using another collect data from user.

Since these creates 2 tasks (1 for each user) I wanted to store the information in the same column, but I seem unable to do so.  Each collect data from user seems to create it's own column even if you name both the same (you end up with 2 columns with the same name but different column id's).

Is there a way to point them both to the same column?  Is there a better way to do this?

 

More the less I am asking the both persons a yes/no question.  in my workflow if they both say yes I send an e-mail but wanted to have only 1 column in the vew to see the results on the tasks.

Thanks,

Multiple Collect Data tasks for one item

  

Hi guys,

I am fairly unfamiliar with creating custom workflows in SPD, so was hoping you can point me in the right direct.

The scenario is that my users enter information into a list. As soon as an item is added, several tasks are sent out to different users across the company, asking them if they are "interested in the item". Some of them will respond Yes, other's No. After everybody has responded, the system should check if anybody has responded with Yes. If so, a new workflow runs. If not, a different workflow runs.

So I thought I need the Collect Data action to create multiple tasks, but then I realised that they don't run at the same time, but after each other, which is not what I want. I want all users to receive their tasks at the same time. So I guess my first question would be if this means I need to create a different workflow for each user? Or is there an easier way to Collect Data from multiple users?

The other question, related to the one above, is: how do I figure out when all users have completed their related tasks? If the tasks are created by several different workflows how do I trigger a new, conditional workflow, after completion?

Thanks for the help.


Collect Data from a User in parallel

  

I have designed a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer.  I have set several “Collect data from a user” actions in SharePoint Designer to be run in parallel.  However, I have discovered that when attempting to retrieve the Task ID from the Tasks list, I am unable to obtain a value until the "Collect Data from User" task has been completed (not just started or in progress), thereby halting my workflow in parallel action.

My custom action basically flows like this:

Collect data and output to variable

  and set Task

Custom Form Field in Collect Data Action doesnot capture multiple users.

  

I have a situation where the department head dynamically assigns the reviewers depending on the document that is uploaded. To capture the reviewers I added a Collect Data Action and a "Reviewers" form field, with type "Person/Group" and checked the following properties

1. Allow selection od People and Groups, 2. Choose from all users and more importantly 3. Allow multiple users

Although I am able to enter multiple users in the form, I am able to retrieve only the first user I entered and the rest just.. disappear!


Collect Data... how to mark task as completed

  

I am using the Connect Data workflow action to create a task for a group of people. If one of those people completes the task, I need to somehow prevent others from editing the task and completing it themselves.

Is there a way to show on the "Edit Task" screen that the task has been completed and who completed it? As a basic start I tried adding the "@Editor" value to the screen manually, but it doesn't show up. In a perfect scenario I want something that behaves like the OOB Approval Workflow Tasks: if a task has been completed and another user tries to edit it, a message will pop up on the screen saying "Task completed by...".

I could just make a task read only after it has been completed, but users still try to jump to the "Edit Task" screen directly from their Outlook email notification. They would receive an Access Denied error, which doesn't really make sense. The same problem would happen if I deleted the task entirely: if people click on their "Edit Task" button in Outlook they would go into no-man's land.


How to use Designer to create a WF to collect data and update item in the list

  

Hi,

I’m trying to create a workflow in SharePoint Designer 2007 to finish the item in the list. In the list, I setup 10 fields (Name, Address, Phone#....), and in the workflow, I set it to start automatically when a new item added in the list (I can add a new Name in the list to start the workflow).

 

In the step1:

The Conditions is: “If Address is empty”.

The Actions is: “Collect all data from lw1990 (Output to Variable: collect1)

 

At this point, I don’t know how to update the current item in the list with the data that just collected from user in Variable:

Access web database - what is the best way to add workflows to the data in these databases?

  

Hi,

I'm experimenting with Access Web Databases with SharePoint 2010.

Can anyone tell me how you typically use workflows with these databases?

Do you just stick to data macros or do you export the information to a static list and then add the workflow to the list, or are any of you working with it in other ways?

I'm looking for recommendations.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks.

How can I show data from a Workflow variable in a Collect Data from User form?

  

Hi,

I have collected some data from a user in a SharePoint Designer workflow step and I now want to display that data in a second "Collect Data from User" form at a subsequent step in my workflow.  How can I add the content of my Workflow data variable in the Collect Data from user form?

This guy says he has done something similar but does not explain the detail: http://www.mstechblogs.com/paul/spd-workflow-collect-data-from-a-user-modify-the-generated-task-form

I'm keen to hack at the aspx form in SPD but I really need the particular line of code that will do it as I'm not a developer.

Your help is greatly appreciated!


How can I show data from a Workflow variable in a SharePoint Designer Collect Data from User form?

  

Hi,

I have collected some data (a comment) from a user in a SharePoint Designer (SPD) workflow step and I now want to display that comment in a second "Collect Data from User" form at a subsequent step in my workflow.  How can I add the content of my Workflow data variable, or even data from my original item, in the Collect Data from user form?

The Collect Data from user form is generated out of the Workflow Tasks list and only contains the url of the item where I could store the comment and which has the workflow attached to it.

This guy says he has done something similar but he appears to only use the URL and static info and does not explain the detail in any case: http://www.mstechblogs.com/paul/spd-workflow-collect-data-from-a-user-modify-the-generated-task-form

I'm keen to hack at the aspx form in SPD but I really need the particular line of code that will do it as I'm not a developer.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
