Can I elect which list appears when a user clicks "complete task" in a sharepoint workflow?

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

I have a "Collect data from user" task which naturally shows the Workflow Tasks list when the user clicks "Complete Task" and the task form closes.  This is a little confusing for the user who thinks they are working on items in the base list.  Is there a way I can choose which list is shown after the user clicks "Complete Task" (or any action which closes a workflow task)?

I am using SharePoint 2007 Standard Edition and SPD 2007

Many thanks for your help,

Kirsten

SharePoint 2010 email enabled list with workflow has incorrect User ID when items are emailed to the

  
I have set up an approval workflow for a document library that has email enabled. Emails come into the document library fine, however, if an item is emailed to the library the workflow kicks off with the initiator as "System Account" rather than the person who submitted the email. This makes the error of "The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the e-mail has a valid recipient." come up. If someone submits a document directly to the library (by logging into sharepoint and submitting) everything works fine. The person submitting by email is a valid sharepoint user and the profile shows the correct email address. The Created by and Modified by fields show the correct person (rather than System Account), it's only the workflow User ID that shows incorrectly if document is emailed to library. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

  
Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

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,

User Alert Management for a specific list versus entire SharePoint site?

  
It seems that to be able to manage User Alerts, one must have Full Access to the entire SharePoint site - and then use => Site Settings > User Alerts. Ideally, I would like to be able to grant access to users to only be able to manage alerts for a specific list. Is this possible (without having to do any programming) and, if so, how? If such access is only available at the site level, I will simply create a Permission Level that allows one to only "Manage Alerts" Thanks in advance for any assistance. Dave

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

  
Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

MOSS 2007 - SharePoint Designer Workflow failing when using group vs individual user

  
I am creating a simple workflow in SharePoint designer that will email a selected user when a list is modified.  I am applying the condition "if modified by" in Designer.  This condition works fine and the email is sent when I select a specific user myDomain\username.  It does not work when I attempt to associate a SharePoint group with the "if modified by" filter. In my example the list has only one SharePoint group associated with it, this is the only group with permissions for the list.  The group contains multiple users. The workflow is successful with the following scenario: if modified by myDomain\user1 or if modified by myDomain\user2 The workflow fails with the follwoing scenario: if modified by mySharePointGroupName  (which includes myDomain\user1 and myDomain\user2) This would be an ungodly if statement with a large membership SharePoint group.  This would also be a nightmare as people leave the organization and their account credentials are left in the large if statement in the workflow.  Looking for the modified condition when associated with a group seems like the logical way of doing this. I also tried "myDomain\domain users" which accounts for all user in my domain, this failed as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

How to get current user in an action of a workflow (without .NET coding) in SharePoint Designer

  

Does somebody know how to get current user (logon user) in an action of a workflow definition from the Sharepoint Designer 2007. I know how to do it by using .NET coding, but it requires to upload a dll to the bin directory of the application which is not an option due to my company Sharepoint policies.


Sharepoint Server 2007. Sharepoint Designer workflow not starting for one user only.

  

We have created a custom workflow in SPD that is attached to a document library within a MOSS 2007 teamsite.

The workflow is set to trigger when a new item is created in the document library.

Previously, the workflow has worked fine for all users but recently has stopped working for one user only.

For the problem user, what we are seeing is that when a new item is created in the document library, the attached workflow never starts.  There is no error, the workflow just does not get triggered.  However, if the problem user goes to an item in the document library and clicks on the workflow she can manually start it and it works fine with no error.

This user has the same permissions on the site as others who do not have any problem.

In the course of investigating this problem, we have temporarily increased the problem users permissions on the document library to full control (was contribute before) but this has had no effect on the problem.  Authentication is being done via Active Directory.  We have tried removing the user from the site and re-instating her but again this has no impact.

Does anyone have any idea how we could fix this problem or further debug it?


Cannot set a user column to SHAREPOINT\system by workflow?

  

I created a list item programatically. So the workflow assoicated with the item will not start automatically. I started the workflow then by codes.

However, in this case, the workflow can not update a user column of an item in another list to the modifier of the item created by codes. The modifier is SHAREPOINT\system.

I can do this through SharePoint UI, the user will change to {domain}\Administrator automatically after I put SHAREPOINT\system. So I have to modify my workflow to assign administrator explictly in this case.

Two questions:

Is it a bug of spd workflow? both SHAREPOINT\system and {domain}\Administrator has full control to all the lists.

Or is there anyway to specify who starts the workflow programatically?

Thanks,


SharePoint 2010 Approval workflow based on list criteria

  

Hello All

I have been requested to create an Approval workflow for a list with 3 columns - Title, Category and Price. The Category field has 3 options - Minor, Moderate and Major.

If the Category is Minor the approval is sent to the Project Manager, and after approval it is sent to the Manager for approval.

How can I accomplish this using SharePoint Designer 2010? Can I modify the OOTB approval workflow, if yes how?

What other options do I have? This is really urgent.

Thank you for any responses.

Cheers

Yoshi

 


Using a sharepoint list to populate a form then capture user input

  

Hi.  New to this forum but looks like a great resource.  I am using MOSS2007, Infopath 2007 and Nintex workflow 2007.

I have a form that will act as a report for each of the operational sites in my company.  Each site receives freight movements on a daily basis and these are on a schedule; I am trying to record the variances to that schedule.  What I have attempted to do is the following:

  • Create a sharepoint list that contains each of the scheduled arrivals per site.
  • Connect to this list in Infopath as a secodary data source.
  • Drop this in to the form as a repeating table.
  • Filter the list of arrivals by using the conditional formatting control on the section, bound to a drop-list where the user specifies the facility/site.

What I am trying to do is present these arrivals and have the user enter an "actual" arrival time next to each, then store the results on submit.  I therefore need to know two things, 1) how to capture an "actual" value for each row in the repeating table (at the moment this is pulled in as an empty field from the list) and 2) how to store the data on submit so it is there when the form is re-opened.

I hope this makes sense, happy to give you any further information that may be required.

Thanks, Matt


SharePoint Designer Workflow to email multiple recipients listed in a custom list

  

Hi all,

I created a workflow in designer attached to a form library. I also have a custom list "Admins" containing names of persons that serves a different purpose but would also like to be used as recipients for the workflow email everytime a new item in the form library is created.

I have been searching the net and tried out few work arounds but so far able to send to only one person in the "Admins" list. The list has a column "Admin Name" which is of type "Person or Group".

Thanks in advance!
