Create workflow to create list item in calendar list of a DIFFERENT site collection


I work for a school district.  Each school has a SharePoint calendar.  We set up each school as its own site collection.  I would like to create a workflow that would send their calendar events to a district calendar, which is also its own site collection.

Example,  School A enters creates a new item on their personal school calendar.  They click YES in the column called SendToDistrictCalendar.  The workflow would be triggered to create this same item in the district calendar (which is in a different site collection) when SendToDistrictCalendar is checked YES.

We're using Windows Server 2003 with Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

I am a mid-level SharePoint user.  I would appreciate ANY and ALL help to make this work!!

Copy List Item in SPD 2010 Workflow Fails if Check Out/Check In Required


I've seen this issue on 3 different Sharepoint 2010 implementations, including upgrades and fresh installations...

The workflow, which works fine in WSS 3.0/MOSS, operates on change of a document.  Workflow reviews a specific column and based on contents of that column, it checks out the document, copies the current item from the current library to another library in the same site and then deletes the item in the current library.

In SharePoint 2010, the following occurs.  Again, this occurs in the upgraded workflow as well as in a brand new workflow created with SPD 2010 on a site that blank / not upgraded.

  • Workflow starts on an item that is verified to not already be checked out.
  • Document is checked out
  • Document IS copied to the other library
  • Workflow fails and is canceled with the following errors:
    The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  (They do.)
    The workflow operation failed because the action requires the document to be checked out. (The item is checked out by workflow - as is evidenced by the fact that the item is still checked out after workflow fails.)
  • RESULT:  the copy operation does work, workflow thinks it doesn't and fails on that step, item is not deleted

Copy List item to the same list (workflow)

I want to copy a list item to the same list. What the client wants to do is to be able to replicate an item to the same list, then make changes.  I can't find a solution anywhere. All solutions are for copying to a different list. 

copy item from list to list

Hello group,

I need some help, I have two websites in SharePoint one in English and the other 
in French.
what I need to do is that, when ever item added or updated or deleted in one of 
these sites, it should be updated in the other one ! 
I mean, if I have added a new announcement in the English site, then i need some 
event to be fired and add that announcement in the French site, same thing goes 
for event Calendars, custom lists, attachment document ... etc. 
and if I opened that announcement again and update its content, then I need that 
event to be fired again and update it in the other site. 
how can we do that ?


How to create list item on different site calendar after workflow approval

I have a vacation request located on our corprate home page that is available to all departments.  we have more department sites within the same site collection, each having their own calendar.  I am wondering if its possible to have the workflow create a list item on a different site calendar IF the department equals "other department".  So all departments submit the vacation request from the home site, then when it is approved the calendar in their department is updated.

Workflow. Copy item to new list - problem updating additional fields in the new list record




I'm having a couple of problems


I have a list, List A. On a couple of triggers I want list A to copy fields to a new record in List B.

Many of the columns are the same Say, column1, column 2, colmn 3. The Copy Item is working fine.


I then want to amend several fields in the new record in List B to reflect the new info from list A, and create info in a fields (say ListBcolum4 type choice and ListBcolum5 single line).

For the life of me I cant get this to work... ive tried updating fields, creating items...

A pointer on how to do this would be greatfully received.
