Unable to create task using Custom task Process Action in Sharepoint Designer 2010 workflow

  
Problem : In Sharepoint Designer 2010, we are working on creating reusable workflow.
In workflow we are using "Start Custom task process" action. It has been observed that,all of the sudden it behaves weirdly. It creates task but without any number appending to taskform.for eg. when we create task it generally shows "Start Task(1) process on Current Item with these users" However now it does not provide any number with Task. It shows "Start Task process on Current Item with These users"
In task form , it does not allows to add task forms fields from existing fields nor allows to create outcomes.
Thus we are unable to create any new workflows or edit and enhance exisitng workflows in the site.This is showstoper for project. Client wants to use sharepoint designer exclusively to develop workflow.
When we tried to create workflow (Sharepoint designer) in a new site with new list it allows us to create custom tasks process. 
Resoultions approaches done so far.
1) Took backup of site on local box from Server and tried to create custom process task but not able to do it.
2) On Server removed all unwanted workflow status columns from the tasks list but still not able to create custom process task 
3) Took backup and t

How to get current user in an action of a workflow (without .NET coding) in SharePoint Designer

  

Does somebody know how to get current user (logon user) in an action of a workflow definition from the Sharepoint Designer 2007. I know how to do it by using .NET coding, but it requires to upload a dll to the bin directory of the application which is not an option due to my company Sharepoint policies.


Passing data into a Sharepoint Designer Form Action workflow

  
Hi

I have a workflow that is triggered by a "Custom Action" on a "Form Action Button" that I added to a DataFormWebPart in SharePoint Designer. So the workflow isn't associated to any list or document library. What I need to do is pass some data to this workflow so that it can do some useful stuff.

I see from here that Natalya Voskresenskaya shows a method that allows you to pass a single list item value into a workflow variable but if you hack this into the aspx file as suggested, when ever you subsequently open design view and the workflow on the button again, all the hacks are removed by SPD.

I have tried this method and it seems to work for one variable, but I cant figure out how to pass more than one. Here is another post that is very similar but slightly different.

In this post Ibrahim said on April 1st 2008:

"I am having difficulty building a Javascript string for my particular requirement; SPD had already built a concat

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list

  

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.

Thank you,
Tzach.

 


How can I implement this workflow scenario with SharePoint Designer?

  

Hi,

I have a document content type and a library which contains this content type. here is what I want to do:

- when user creates a new document in this library, he will enter some user  names with people picker and then a message including some columns of the content type will be sent to that users. And then, at a certain date (lets say 1 day before a date that is one of the site columns) another email, a reminder will be sent.

I havent been able to find :

1- how can I replace a people picker field on workflow initiation form and how can I make it sent email to the user.

2- How can I make it sent a reminder email 1 day before the date that is stored in one of the columns of the content type(current item)

any help would be welcome,

Ceren

SharePoint Designer Workflow Changes not Posting

  
Hey Community, I've encountered a tough problem.  I have made some changes to a SharePoint Designer (SPD) workflow.  I click Finish in the workflow designer and the changes are saved without error.  However, when I run the workflow on the actual site, it's still the old workflow design, not the workflow with the recent changes.  On this site I have Full Control permissions.  No errors appear in the workflow.  I do not have access to the CA, SP Logs, or Event Viewer. I hope you can help!Tom Molskow SharePoint Architect - If I solved the issue please propose my reply as the answer - Thanks!

How to start a workflow programmatically that was created in Sharepoint designer 2010?

  
Trying to start a workflow from code.  The workflow itself has been created in SPD 2010, which from what I understand, means that there is no assembly until the first time it's ran.  However, when I try to find the association record, that doesnt exist.  Is this becuase the 'code' hasnt been compiled yet?  If so, how can I have sharepoint start the just-in-time compiler for a declarative based workflow, so that can kick it off with in code? tia Rocky SandersRocky Sanders

Error customizing Approval Workflow in SharePoint Designer

  
When attempting to customize OOTB Approval Workflow, message "Workflow is read only?"  Request copy errors with "Server could not complete your request" Details button produces blank.  Any clue?  I am the site collection administrator for the site and the secondary farm administrator.

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.

Designing a Workflow in Sharepoint Designer 2010 Help

  
I Have no experience using Sharepoint Designer and I am trying to design a test workflow to see how usefull workflows will be at our company.  I have specific steps that I would like the workflow to follow but I do not know how I would go about implementing these steps in the workflow.  I have done a lot of research online and have had no luck finding anyhing sililar to what I am trying to do which makes me wonder if Sharepoint Designer is capable of doing these things. Here are the steps I would like my workflow to take 1.  Propt the user to fill out a form 2.  Send this form to a specific user 3.  Specific user then selects a person from a different department to send this form to 4.  The selected user then sends multiple documents to the person who started the workflow I know there is a collect data action but once the data is collected i do not see any action to send the collected data to a user.  Also I know there is a send document to repository action which would be usefull if there was some action to prompt the user to fill out the document at the start.  Like I have said before my Sharepoint designer knowledge extends about as far as what I have been able to teach myself so I would greatly appreciate any help I can get with this.
