I created a timer job service to send reminders when a task is overdue, now I am looking at how visible it is for reassigning the task to some one else within the timer job service itself.
Is this possible?

I am trying to update the task status automatically after a list item is approved without much luck. I need to set the task status to "completed" without having to manually hitting the "complete task" button, so the next person in line
can approve the list item.
How can I change the status of a task using SharePoint Designer 2010?
In my SharePoint Designer task editor I have:
if Current Item:Approval Status equals 0;Approved
---I need to add a line in here that updates the task status to "completed"
Assign Approve list item to User2
Thank you all in advance.
I get a error when I want to update a task.

I have created a sequential workflow using visual studio. I also created a content type inherited from the workflow-task content type. Workflow creates a task-item in the task list. I want to update the workflow task using the silverlight client
object model. I find on the internet and WorkflowTask.AlterTask() method to update the workflow task item. But I didn't find the equivalent of WorkflowTask.AlterTask(). Can any one help me to update the workflow task from the silverlight client object model?
I also want to terminate the workflow instance using silverlight client object model, but i didn't find any way to terminate the workflow using client object model?
I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.
I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.
I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.
I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).
I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.
When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.
The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.
I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.
I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.
It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.
I have checked my security and I have fu
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
There are actually two separate (I think) problems here. The scenario: I used the SharePoint Designer 2007 to create a workflow attached to a form library. When a form is
submitted to the library, a To-Do-Item is created on a task list. The To-Do-Item is initially assigned to a GROUP. A user from the group then selects the name of an individual from a choice list in edit item. This person now becomes the
Assigned To for the task.
What is needed is 1) To update the Assigned To column of the Form library when someone in the GROUP assigns the task to an INDIVIDUAL; and 2) To have the Due Date from the submitted
InfoPath form propagate to the task list.
I've tried having one workflow try to do everything and also having a secondary workflow set up on the task list to do the task assignment update but have not been successful
in solving either issue. I don’t think that I am really understanding how to Define Workflow Lookup when not working with the Current Item. I know what fields I want but I don’
1. What is the name of the field thats connect between the task item and the list name or guid and the list item id or guid
2. SPD: how can when starting the workflow how can i ensure that the initial form variables will be saved at the workflow task list
I have a Workflow that is using an InfoPath task form. In the "FormEvents_Loading" method event handler I have some code that needs to run each time the form is opened. I recycle the App Pool and open the form the code runs perfectly, but
if I close and try to re-open the form the code is not run at all. I can then recycle the App Pool again and on the next load the code executes just fine. The code that is supposed to be run is a very simple statement to set a field value,
so I don't think it is interfering.
Does anyone know what this might be?

We are having an issue with occasional Tasks being created by a WF that have a blank Assigned to field. Solution consists of:
Unfortunately, although this worked fine during dev and test, now the solution is live and we are having 150-200 requests per day, we are finding that the WF occasionally fails to fill in the Assigned To details when it creates the Task. (approx 8 failures
per 200 requests, ie 4%).
As SharePoint already has the User data field, I am confused why this might fail, and there is no obvious pattern (same auth, 4 work OK then 1 failure).
Does SP contact the AD again when it creates the Task?
Anything else I should investigate? any suggested fix / work-arounds?
