Creating a custom Workflow + Custom workflow task + complete = error

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi everyone,

I am using a custom workflow in SharePoint 2010, with one task in it using a Custom Content type deriving from the "Workflow Task" type, with a custom Edit form.

From this point everything is fine, I can create my Task, open it from the task list with my custom webpage as form, but when I want to update my task to complete it, i get a very weird message that I didn't find any help about: "The workflow's parent item associated with this task is currently in the recycle bin, which prevents the task from being completed".

I Just have my Custom workflow using a Custom Workflow task, I don't see where this should come from... I even looked in the Recycle Bin, but it was empty as I was thinking it would be...

Any chances someone got a solution on this?

Cheers, Ben

Access Denied error on custom workflow task list item

  

We have created a two level custom approval workflow on (an InfoPath) form library using SharePoint Designer (SPD) with first and second approver. The workflow works fine as long as the approver is in the Site Collection Administrators group. The approvers who are not in the admin group can get to the custom Task form for approve/reject, but they can only view the form. When they click on the “Edit Item” button of the task list item, they receive “Access Denied” error. We have given these approvers “Approve”, “Contribute” permissions on the Form library and even Full Control on the task form list (all items). Note: The users use their domain account and the error they are getting is: Access Denied, You are currently signed as DomainName\LoginName, Sign in as a different user.

We have read through several forums and have found people having the same issue. We tried all of the suggestions described in the following links - but no success so far.

How to create custom task form in state machine workflow?

Custom Workflow Error: The Workflow files were saved but cannot be run

  

Hi all,

I'm wondering if someone would have any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot this custom workflow issue.

Recently we can't attach any SharePoint Designer workflow to any list in a farm. We get this error message:

"Errors were found when compiling the workflow. The workflow files were saved but cannot be run. Unexpected error on server associating the workflow"

The standard workflows from UI seems to be working fine. Also user defined workflow is enabled. In the past I was able to fix similar issue with another farm following this post (remvoing SP designer custom workflow activities entries)- but does not look like this is the case this time.

Nothing in the logs regarding this error. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

 


Custom Task form of a SharePoint Designer workflow is not displaying correctly

  

We have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer. We are using one action “Collect Data from a User”. As you know, this action sends an email to a user with a link to a task form where user is supposed to accept or reject a request. We are encountering following issues with this form:

  1. Form is not a workflow form, it is a task item of the task list that the “Collect Data from a User” action of the workflow creates.
  2. Form opens as an item of the workflow task list in View mode (DispForm.ASPX) instead of Edit mode (EditForm. ASPX)
  3. When user clicks on “Edit Item” button, it displays all the fields of the task as editable – we want only the Approve/Reject option buttons and the comments TextBox (that we created during the workflow design) to be displayed as editable

Can someone please explain what is going on and how can we resolve the above issues?
Thanks……….

Literal Error when trying to pass custom types to my workflow

  

Guys,

I have a simple procedural workflow that determines how to assign a real estate lead to an agent. It takes three input parameters, and 1 output parameter. The only unusual aspect of this activity, (if you call it unusual), is that I'm passing in complex objects rather than types. I've created a lead and agent objects like this:

    public class LeadProxy
    {
        public int PK { get; set; }
        public int Amount { get; set; }

   }

    public class AgentProxy
    {
        public int PK { get; set; }
        public int Senority { get; set; }
        public int CurrentLeadCount { get; set; }
    }

My current input arguments are:

  <x:Members>
    <x:Property Name="Agents" Type="InArgument(scg:List(local:AgentProxy))" />
    <x:Property Name="Lead" Type="InArgument(local:LeadProxy)" />
    <x:Property Name="AssignToAgent" Type="OutArgument(local:AgentProxy)" />

Error retrieving Workflow Properties in a Custom State Machine Workflow WSS 3.0

  
Using Visual Studio 2008 and the Office 2008 State Machine workflow template, I created a VERY SIMPLE workflow with ONE state. In the state initialization, I create a simple task. This works fine when I hard code the title, etc for the task. But, when I need to get some properties out of the list where the workflow was started, I get an exception  I've done this in a sequential workflow and it works fine. Error is: "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: uriString. Code snippet is:

How to assign values to workflow task person or group custom field?

  
Using visual studio 2008, in createTask_MethodInvoking, I have the following code. RequestFields has the values from the InfoPath form. ApprovingPersons is a person or group field, added to the task list by my custom task content type. I checked the task list associated with the workflow and I see the custom field.

SPUser user;
SPFieldUserValueCollection fuvc = new SPFieldUserValueCollection();
foreach (Contact person in RequestFields.Persons)
{
      user = workflowProperties.Web.EnsureUser(person.LoginName);
      fuvc.Add(new SPFieldUserValue(workflowProperties.Web, user.ID, user.Name));
}

// this is the line causing problem, I believe
PreApprovalTask_TaskProperties.ExtendedProperties["ApprovingPersons"] = fuvc;

I got the following error message:

at System.RuntimeMethodHandle._InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] arguments, SignatureStruct& sig, MethodAttributes methodAttributes, RuntimeTypeHandle typeOwner)
   at System.RuntimeMethodHandle.InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] argument

SharePoint custom workflow sending duplicate task assigned emails

  

I'm running into an issue where a custom sequential workflow I've built in VS2010 is sometimes sending duplicate emails to the user to whom created tasks are assigned. Note: this is a Site workflow not a List workflow, in case that matters.

It's a pretty simple flow: i've got an InfoPath initiation form, and am using an OnWorkflowActivated workflow action to take the data from the form and popluate some workflow variables, then I've got a CreateTask workflow action that sets the AssignedTo value on the Task Properties, along with some other Task Property values.

The task gets created successfully in the task list, and in most cases a single email goes out to the person the task is assigned to. However, sometimes (and I haven't been able to figure out what is causing the difference) up to 3 duplicate messages are sent out, as well.

I've seen other posts in the forums where this sort of thing is happening with OOTB workflows ( this thread, for example: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointworkflow/thread/66f94e07-a690-4166-aaeb-b7f5bc424fe4?prof=required). However, duplicate tasks are not being created (unless I'm missing the duplicates somehow -- they're not showing in the task li
