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

I am having a simple OOTB approval worflow associated to the simple document library. Task is created when an document is uploaded to the library. When I click the task item in task list, I see a blank field "Requested By" right below the
"Status" column and I am unable to understand from where this field is coming and how to populate this field. Any help would be great...
I have been requested to create an Approval workflow for a list with 3 columns - Title, Category and Price. The Category field has 3 options - Minor, Moderate and Major.
If the Category is Minor the approval is sent to the Project Manager, and after approval it is sent to the Manager for approval.
How can I accomplish this using SharePoint Designer 2010? Can I modify the OOTB approval workflow, if yes how?
What other options do I have? This is really urgent.
Thank you for any responses.

How to create Custom workflow approval form in sharePoint 2010.?
I have to create serial approval workflow with 3 stages,
1. In each of approval stage, Approver has to approve and update the value in the SharePoint List.
2. Workflow email should have email link to workflow list item.
Please let us know how to achieve this. Is this possible using Out of Box workflow?
I created a copy of the out-of-the-box globally reusable workflow titled, "Approval - SharePoint 2010."
I then modified the "Initiation Form Parameters" in the workflow copy that I created. By default, the "Show on Form" settting for these parameters - Approvers, Expand Groups, Request, Due Date for all Tasks, Duration per Task, Duration Units, CC
is set to "Both" (i.e. show these parameters during Initiation and Association). I did not want to display these parameters during Initiation, as we don't want end-users to change these settings. I want them to be displayed during Association only. We want
Administrators only to be able to configure these parameters.
So I changed the "Show on Form" setting for the above parameters to "Association (attaching to a list)." I am able to save the workflow. And when I click on "Check for Errors" no errors are reported. But when I attempt to publish the workflow, I get the following
Errors were found when compiling the workflow. The workflow files were saved but cannot be run.
And when I click on the "Advanced" button in the error message, I see this detailed error:
(0, 0) Activity 'ID4' validation failed: Property 'DurationUnit' has invalid
I have a problem with Approval Workflows on Sharepoint Server 2010 ,
My scenerio is below;
1-Create SharePoint 2010 Publishing site.
2- Create a page say, "xyz.aspx", in page library.
3- Check in the page.
4- Publish the page using drop down menu from page library.
5- SharePoint 2010 will run "Page Approval" workflow.
6- While workflow is in progress, try to edit the page.
7- Pop up with window "Error" will appear.
This Error Message is:This page is currently locked for editing because a workflow is running which will stop if the page is changed. Do you want to continue ?
And then always ask this question to me while wf is running
In this article, the author covers the new features in SharePoint 2010 geared for workflow developers and thenÃÂ walks the readerÃÂ through a couple of new user scenarios.
MSDN Magazine November 2009
In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:
SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);
//resolve any lookup parameters
string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);
//find workflow association by name
SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssoc = currentList.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName(workflowId, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture);
if (workflowAssoc != null)
//start the workflow
SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);
And workflow #2 will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified to Completed.
I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay
In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.
In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details
