SharePoint Workflow E-mail Hyperlink has the Spaces Between Two Words Are Removed

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have a very simple Workflow, that includes href link to Infopath form.
If the form name includes spaces, the URL redirects to a The Form has been Closed message, indicating that it cant find that form.
In our scenario, the file name of the document/form in SharePoint when saved is called "Travel Request - <submit date>"  as noted with spaces.
The Hyperlink URL in the email generated by the workflow appears to encode all values in the name after the first two words (after Request).  See below.  after the word Request the spaces are encoded properly.     its replacing the first space with it appears %0d%0a (CR LF)
The URL below is what is displayed when right clicking, and selecting Edit Hyperlink in the email

I can reproduce this in development and production.  Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

Incoming E-Mail with attachment not starting SharePoint workflow (VS 2008)

  
I am working on SharePoint 2007 workflow in visual studio 2008. The workflow is attached to an email-enabled list and is supposed to automatically start on incoming email. It works fine when email (without attachment) is sent to the list but the workflow cannot start when the email is sent with attachment. There is no error message but the workflow status field is blank. The attachment field is also blank. When I manually run the workflow, it works fine. This problem happened on Staging and production servers. On Development server, the workflow works fine either way. The list is setup to save attachments. Any help please

how to set hyperlink url and description simutaneously in sharepoint designer workflow?

  
I have a hyperlink column in a list. I'd like the sharepoint designer workflow update the url and set the description.

Seems I can not do it: the designer provides two options, browse to a fixed url where you can specify the description; another is point to item or workflow data. But I do not know how to specify both.

If hyperlink column works like other lookup column, you can user {ID}#;{Value} to do this. However tried and it did not work. Could not find better documents.

Any ideas,

Thanks,

Setting permissions of a specific SharePoint workflow

  

We have a very simple workflow whereby an document placed in a public library (INBOX) is moved it to a private library (VERIFY) and then deleted. The workflow works correctly when someone who has access to the VERIFY library drops a record into the INBOX library.  However it does not work when the user does not have access to the VERIFY library.

I was told that I need to "set the AD group associated with a specific SharePoint workflow" but cannot find any reference to this in SPD.

Thanks.

 


Terminating a SharePoint Workflow Programatically

  

 

I have a custome workflow coded in VS 2005 and deployed in to GAC and associated to a List in the SharePoint Portel through MS SharePoint Designer.

 

When an Exception happened in the code, the worklow instance' Status is shown as "Error Occured" and get suspended. since this workflow instance is "hung up" at this list item another instance of the workflow can't run. To run another instance you have to go into the SP Portal --> List and click on the "Error Occured" under the workflow of the item and then you have to terminate the workflow by clicking on the "Terminate this workflow now" link.

 

I just need to do this function ("Terminating the workflow") in the code in my Catch block where i handle the exception of the workflow activity.

 

could some one please tell me how to do this? or even point me in the right direction?

 

i've so far tried varity of:

SPWorkflowManager.CancelWorkflow(workflow);

 

and

 

ActivityBind activityBind = new

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter

  

We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.

 

For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).

 

In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:

 

08/27/2007 13:49:43.24  w3wp.exe (0x0CA0)                        0x1438 Windows SharePoint Services    Workflow Infrastructure        72fs Unexpected RunWorkflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: <Error><CompilerError Line="1" Column="1" Text="The root activity type is invalid.&q

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.

 


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 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
