SPD 2010 reusable workflow not picking up Current Item values


Hi, I have created an SPD 2010 reusable workflow that is attached to a specific content type...such content type is derived from a published InfoPath form with some of its fields being promoted, like the "Approvers" fields.

In SPD 2010, I add the " Start Approval process on Current Item with 'Participants' " action...those Participants I get (or at least I want to) from the Current Item: ApproversField.

After saving and publishing the workflow, I use the content type (set as default) in a form library and then add the workflow to it. After creating an Item the workflow is automatically rejected.

I checked the Workflow History and I realized the participants are not being picked from the current item's field... weird thing is, if I try the very same actions/etc in a workflow that is attached to that list everything works perfect... I tried to log messages all around the workflow process but the values never get picked up...

What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance.

SharePoint 2010 Long Starting if start workflow programatically


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

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow


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

Video: What's New in SharePoint 2010 Workflow

Prior to SharePoint 2010, workflows had to be associated with a list. This meant that if you found a problem that would be well suited to using workflow that wasn't list or document related, you would have to find some way to associate that workflow with a list. This often led to "dummy" list items only created to be a vehicle for a workflow. (Length: 13:50)

Any good Approval-type workflow tutorials for VS 2010?

Greetings.  I'm looking for some good tutorials (or books) on creating SharePoint 2010 Approval workflows in Visual Studio 2010.  I've spent a few hours digging through the search results on bing/google, but almost all of the examples (including content from Microsoft) show a very simple workflow in Visual Studio 2010 that doesn't contain approval steps.  I am looking for a more comprehensive tutorial on how to build a workflow that contains approval steps and evaluates the column values (i.e. evaluate a list column  if(Total Cost > 10000)) to determine branching.  InfoPath integration is a bonus but not required.  Anyone have any good links with solid tutorials?  Thanks in advance.

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
