Collect Feedback Workflow

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi all,

I've created a collect feedback workflow on library "x" using sharepoint server 2007 and i have defined a sharepoint group (including only one user u1) who will recieve the tasks and complete them.

Now if a new item is created in "x", a new task will be created and assigned to the owner + to the "System Account" which keeps the task "In progress" status and not completed even if all assigned parties (u1) complete their tasks.

How can  i stop the workflow from sending the task to the "System Account".

I would really appreciate your quick response. Thanks.

Collect Feedback workflow hidden field

  

Hello all,

I am using the out of box Collect Feedback workflow.  It works well for most part.  However I would like to get reviewer's feedback to be shown on a Dashboard.  Is there a way to expose that information in a Data View?  I couldn't figure out which data field stores the feedback information.

Thanks.

Modify User in Collect Data from User Workflow

  

I've created a workflow with a Collect Data from User action that emails a Group when the task is created. Once the task is claimed by an individual, the Assigned To column in the task list is updated to display that person's name but once the task is completed the email variable for the action is not updated and the group is emailed instead of the person listed as Assigned To.

So the question is this: Is there a way to update the user varialbe in the workflow task once the task is completed, or would I need to build my own workflow and use the Send Email action?


Share Point Designer 2007 Workflow (Sequential) - multi-collect data from user

  
I am currently building a multi-step workflow using ShrePoint designer for MOSS2007. I am getting a bit confused as to if I have an error or if I am doing something incorrect. Here is what I have going. My workflow consists of something similar to the following New document comes in, a collect data from user routine is ran and assigned to a reviewer. My understanding when I create a collect data from user WorkFlow step is any data I request is saved in the "Tasks" list. Therefore I need to grab the workflow task ID in order to later lookup what the reviewer submitted... I understand this...   However, I have one more collect data from user workflow step and I have one more item to collect. Even though this is a brand new collect data from user workflow step - does the collected data still go into the "Tasks" list? In other words, if I have two steps in a workflow and both of these steps are "collect data from user", does the data from both steps go into the same "Tasks" list?  I could see how this might be possible as long as the Task list columns contain all the items for all the different "collect" data from user steps.  I don't see two different Tasks lists representing or named "Reviewer" or "Final" or anything, so I assume the items are all in "Tasks"   However..

OOB Collect Signatures Workflow doesn't start

  

I created a Word 2007 file, with signature lines, then added it as a content type to the library.  Then I made it the default New type of file to a SharePoint library with an existing Collect Signatures workflow.  I can create a new instance of the file, then Save it to the document library, but the Workflow doesn't start.  I tried clicking the Workflow button in Word, and clicking the specific workflow I created, but no luck this way either.

What did I miss?


SharePoint 2010 Collect Signatures workflow - no digital signatures?

  

Hello, I configured a "Collect Signatures" workflow for the content type "Document", then uploaded a MS Word 2010 (.docx) document as content type "Document".  This Word document as 2 empty Signature Line in it.

I then start the workflow, basically 2-stage with 2 person from my Active Directory.  However, what I found is that when I go to my workflow task and click on the "This document requires your signature" link, it pops up a "Workflow Task" box in the browser.  There is a "Sign" button which I can click to sign but it does not sign on the signature lines inside my Word document.

What am I doing wrong here?  Or does SharePoint 2010 Collect Signatures workflow no longer work with digital sigantures?  Thanks.


How can I show data from a Workflow variable in a Collect Data from User form?

  

Hi,

I have collected some data from a user in a SharePoint Designer workflow step and I now want to display that data in a second "Collect Data from User" form at a subsequent step in my workflow.  How can I add the content of my Workflow data variable in the Collect Data from user form?

This guy says he has done something similar but does not explain the detail: http://www.mstechblogs.com/paul/spd-workflow-collect-data-from-a-user-modify-the-generated-task-form

I'm keen to hack at the aspx form in SPD but I really need the particular line of code that will do it as I'm not a developer.

Your help is greatly appreciated!


How can I show data from a Workflow variable in a SharePoint Designer Collect Data from User form?

  

Hi,

I have collected some data (a comment) from a user in a SharePoint Designer (SPD) workflow step and I now want to display that comment in a second "Collect Data from User" form at a subsequent step in my workflow.  How can I add the content of my Workflow data variable, or even data from my original item, in the Collect Data from user form?

The Collect Data from user form is generated out of the Workflow Tasks list and only contains the url of the item where I could store the comment and which has the workflow attached to it.

This guy says he has done something similar but he appears to only use the URL and static info and does not explain the detail in any case: http://www.mstechblogs.com/paul/spd-workflow-collect-data-from-a-user-modify-the-generated-task-form

I'm keen to hack at the aspx form in SPD but I really need the particular line of code that will do it as I'm not a developer.

Foundations: Workflow Services for Local Communication

  

This month's column describes how to use WCF for communication between a workflow and a host application in Windows Workflow Foundation 3. This knowledge should help developers with their efforts using WF3 and prepare them for WF4, where WCF is the only abstraction over queues (referred to as "bookmarks" in WF4) that ships with the framework.
