Workflow Status History

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 


I found out some docs, that were approved over 3 months ago. But now there workflow statuses are clear. And now workflow history inside also.

Is there some mechanism in sharepoint that cleans up workflow history and document approval statuses?

How to make the Workflow Status remain "In Progress" when a task is "Rejected"

  

Hi Sir/Mam,

I have a work flow running on a list, when a task is Rejected at a stage then the Workflow status is set to "Completed". Instead of this I want the Status to remain as "In Progress", so that in future after the modification of the document the Approver may Approve it and then take it to the next stages. This is not possible if the Workflow is set to "Completed".

Can you please suggest an easy way to do this

Thanks in Advance

Change the Workflow Status through code

  

HI Folks,

I have a scenario where i need to develop a 6 stage approval workflow(sequential) using WWF and depoly it to sharepoint. Everythigns fine till here.

Now we look ahead to change the Status field on the documents library which actually has the Workflow Name as the column name and its value being In Progress, depending on the stage of approval. Like(Approved 1, Approved 2, Approved 3.)

And if rejected the status should be rejected than Completed. Any idea how can we update this column of the List item.

I have tried item[workflowProperties.Workflow.ParentAssociation.Name]="Approved 1";

But this throws an error saying input string is not in a correct format.

Any information would be of great help :)

Thanks

SPD workflow status show "starting" when I create a document from the library !!. and hangs

  
I have a document library in MOSS 2007. Have created a WF and that starts "autmatically when new item created" In the document library I have created couple of column those are mandatory (required columns) and user has to fill those column while uploading a document as well creating a document from library. WF has ran and completed succefully  when I use "upload" option to load a document.  As you are aware, when we "upload" a document, we will have to fill all "required columns" and the click "check in" command button.  After I do all this, document get loaded and WD ran succesfully. However, the WF is not running when I create a document (.docx) from this library (using "new" button) !!.  I have filled all required field in the document information panel . After save & exit from WORD application, I can see WF status as "starting". But, it never started and completed.  So I did following and found WF worked !! a) After creating document (.docx) using "new" option I found WF status "starting"!. So,  I did "Check-out and Check-in" manually from document library. After doing this,  WF ran and status has been changed as "completed" b) In SPD, I change workflow start option from "Automatic" to "Manually start".&nb

OOTB Approval Workflow - Approval status could not be updated

  
I've setup up a standard OOTB (out of the box) approval workflow on a Pages library, in order to manage the approval of all pages created and updated.  This operates as expected, and the users are mostly happy, execpt for one scenario: Once a page has been submitted for approval, if the approver wants to edit the page, it stops the workflow (after prompting) which then requires the workflow to be started again.  They would like it so the approver can edit and then approve, without restarting the whole workflow process. There is a setting in the approval workflow configuration of the 'Complete the Workflow' section in the 'Cancel this Workflow when the' area, and by unchecking the 'Document is changed' option, I believe this should enable approvers to edit the page and then approve the page, without stopping the workflow  However, the workflow appears to operate as expected, except the page does not automatically get approved.  By looking in the workflow history, I can see the following error: Post-completion activity performed. Approval status could not be updated. I've tried this on two separate MOSS 2007 Enterprise farms, both are publishing sites and I'm running as a site collection administrator, both with the same results. Is anyone else getting this, is this normal?! Is there another way to approach this, without having to go

Workflow history truncated description

  
Hello When viewing the workflow history for a review workflow, the description field is truncated if it is very long (it appear with ... at the end). Is there a way to see the value of the whole field? Someone already asked this question but the answer given is about using the SharePoint Object Model. I am looking for a solution for end-users. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointworkflow/thread/5af8d475-149b-45eb-b565-e47ccb71a03b

Workflow status page "unknown Error"

  
Hi ,

  Since two days I am facing weired error from simple workflow. I have created a simple infopath form and WF (in SPD). Workflow starts normally and ends also. But when I click the status link "completed" it just throws an 'unknown error' page. It used to work few days back and suddenly stopped. I canno't see the the log or any status. Other workflows in other site collections work fine.  

The link to the page is :http://servername/_layouts/WrkStat.aspx?List={656C7595-C056-483A-8058-C2402BC78B9C}&WorkflowInstanceID={8ac46ac9-aae0-434d-a3ea-f8125f08df96}

Checking the moss log I found :

Exception Type: System.NullReferenceException Exception Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Any help ??

Approval Workflow does not update the Content Approval status if started automatically

  

Hi,

I’m using a simple Approval Workflow associated with Content Approval on site pages. It works fine when I set it to be started manually (by using Allow this workflow to be manually started by an authenticated user with Edit Item permissions  option) and on the completion of the workflow the Content Approval status is updated accordingly. But when I set it to be started automatically (by using Start this workflow when a new item is created  / Start this workflow when an item is changed options), it does not updates the Content Approval status. Note that I’ve set the Update the approval status after the workflow is completed (use this workflow to control content approval) option to true.

Workflow keeps status Starting

  

Hi,

We use SharePoint 2007 in our organisation, and are developing some simple Workflows with SharePoint Designer.
The thing is that, even the most simple workflows, are not running consistent. Sometimes the workflow goes
from 'in process' to 'completed', but mostly the status of the workflow keeps 'Starting'

I read many forums about this isseue, but stiil I have no idea what i'm doing wrong. Somewhere I got the tip
to put a delay in the action of the workflow, but the result is not satisfied.

Can someone give me a tip?

With kind regards,
Jurgen

Workflow History Not Added During Workflow

  
Hello,

I've created a custom sequential workflow in VS 2008. In the workflow I've added several LogToHistoryList activities, the description for one contains a dynamic value that is a task ID. The workflow histories do not appear in the history list until the workflow is completed. Has anyone else encountered this issue? I've tried including workflowProperties.HistoryList.Update(); to the LogToHistoryList_MethodInvoking with no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Justin

How to Change Workflow Status Programatically on DueDate reached

  

I have developed a sharepoint approval workflow using VS.NET 2008. Workflow fires when any new item is created. Three parallel task is created and waiting for approval.

Workflow will only completed when all three approvers approves/completes their task. I want to change the status (denied) of the workflow every tuesday 11:59PM if any one of the approval is pending. This  denial work I want to perform by programatically within the workflow.

so I need suggestion how do I achieve the above scenario?

Do I write any timer job to monitor workflow status on every tuesday 11:59PM and denied as per the logic mentioned above.

or

Do I encaptualte the denial logic withing the workflow itself?

Please suggest a way to solve the problem...

Auto-fill fields are racking up the version history whether they are on one workflow or many....SPD

  

I have a whole batch of fields which trigger an automatic date entry when they are changed: if more than one field is changed then a version is created for each field that is changed. I did some more fiddling to see how many of these workflows I could cram into one (originally built to have one workflow per date trigger) and tested again but although the changes are grouped together now the system automatic updates still trigger another version for each automatically entered date. Anyone know how to get around that? Its not unbearable but it just offends me somehow and it might cause a problem later on.
