Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item

  
Hi,

 

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

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.

Workflow field not being added to list or views when adding a workflow

  

This problem just started happening in my entire site collection.  Anytime I associate a workflow to any list or doc lib the Workflow column that shows the status and links to the history is not beind added to the list or any views and is nowhere to be found.   Here's exactly what I'm doing:

1.  Go the List settings -> workflow settings -> add a workflow (for this example the OOB approval workflow)

2.  After adding I go to the List, the workflow column doesn't exist.

3.  I go to "modify view", and the workflow column is not listed in the available columns.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Assigning users when creating a list item in a workflow

  

I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.  When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.  When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.  How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?  Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?

Updating a List item field value in a SPD Workflow is setting Date fields to null

  
Hello everybody,I faced a very weird behavior while creating a workflow in SPD against a Document Library.Here is the case:1- Create a document library in sharepoint site.2- Add a custom column of type DATE.3- Upload any document to the library4- Edit the item metadata and set the custom date field to any date you want.5- Now using sharepoint designer, create a very simple Workflow with only one action that updates the current item "Title" field to any value. (Note: In my case I set the workflow to start manually and not automatically)6- Save the workflow and then start it on the uploaded item.7- Now check the value of the date column after the workflow is finished.8- You will see that the Date field is Empty... (very weird)Notes:   1-This behavior will not appear on a standard list. it is only appearing in a Document library.  2- I am using WSS 3.0 SP2 + MOSS 2007 SP2. Also SharePoint designer 2007 SP2Did anyone face this situation and does it have a fix, or am I doing something wrong here... Please help.Regards,Maheed

does SPD support filtering of the mail title/body we send to a list/library?

  
for example, if we send a mail with the title of "%hostname% %ipaddress%" to a list. can SPD WF filter the title and get %hostname% to a new variable? the reason to ask this is i want to send a well-formated mail to sharepoint and the automatical WF can recognize the change of the list items and update the relevant columns by the filtered content from mail title or body. thanks!

Workflow - automatically create discussion item using title field of of custom list item as its subj

  
Anyone any ideas as to how I can configure SharePoint to create a discussion item using the title of a list item. e.g. user creates list item on a custom list - SP automatically creates a Discussion thread for this list item in the discussions list. I'm guessing this can't be down OOTB . would I be looking at SPD or a coded solution ? regards, Counie

New Item Added to List/Library trigers Alert to non-AD Security Group

  
I am trying to implement an alert when a new item is added to a list. Idealy this alert would be sent to either a SharePoint Group or a AD Distribution Group. I do not have access/authroization to create security groups. The research I have found so far tells me that I can only add AD users and AD mail-enabled security groups through the alert GUI. My questions is first is this a valid finding? Second, if I create a custom workflow can I have the workflow triger on new item added and have it send a notification to the specified SharePoint/Distribution group? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Workflow does not run when list item updated with MS Access

  

Hello,

I have created a workflow in SharePoint Designer 2007 that copies the list item from one list to another archive list. The workflow is copies the list item when a field is updated to archive. This works fine when updating the list item within SharePoint.

the list is also linked to a Microsoft Access database, the workflow does not even start when updating the field within Access. Can anyone tell me why this is and how I can get the workflow to start when updating the list item with MS Access?

Thanks,

Create workflow to create list item in calendar list of a DIFFERENT site collection

  

I work for a school district.  Each school has a SharePoint calendar.  We set up each school as its own site collection.  I would like to create a workflow that would send their calendar events to a district calendar, which is also its own site collection.

Example,  School A enters creates a new item on their personal school calendar.  They click YES in the column called SendToDistrictCalendar.  The workflow would be triggered to create this same item in the district calendar (which is in a different site collection) when SendToDistrictCalendar is checked YES.

We're using Windows Server 2003 with Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

I am a mid-level SharePoint user.  I would appreciate ANY and ALL help to make this work!!
