Send summary email on 1st of every month sharepoint workflow

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hi all ,

I have a situation where in I need to create a sharepoint workflow for Infopath Form Library to send out emails. But the condition is a little tricky. I need to send out one email only on 1st of every month consisting of single link or mulitple link for infopath records submitted for the person. Basically if somebody submitted 3 infopath forms for me in March, on 1st of April I should get one email notification with a summary of all 3 forms. Is this possible. If yes how?

Environment is WSS 3.0 wih Infopath 2007

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.

I can't send email from workflow.


I’ve got strange problem. I’ve created workflow with Visual studio 2008 which works fine. If workflow create task user gets email with alert and it works  - user gets email.   The problem is that I would like to use Workflow component: “SendEmail” for some cases. And if I enter directly into component email address for field: “TO” the message will be delivered. But if I use simple code with the same email address for field ”TO” it doesn’t work (field TO is empty now).

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

Send a workflow email as plain text


I'm using a (SP designer) workflow to send e-mail alerts. I need to be able to send the e-mail in plain text because the recipient is an e-mail-to-SMS service that cannot handle HTML messages. I tried adding <pre> tags to my message, this causes the message to look like plaintext in Outlook, but is still sending the message as text/html type which isn't compatible with the aforementioned SMS service. Any ideas how I can make sharepoint send the messages as true plain text?

Mail server is Exchange 2003 SP2.

how to send emails to multiple persons at the same time from sharepoint workflow using visual studio


Hi Every one !!

   I am trying to send copy of a document for multiple directors at my client for their approval.

   The director can approve the document at the same time.

   Hence, I would like to know how to create a task to send emails for multiple people at the same time from a sharepoint workflow using visual studio 2008.

   I see there is a parallel activity. But it gives me only 2 paths ( means would be able to send only for 2 users )

   If creating a separate task to send emails for each user is an inefficient way, please let me know if there is another good way of sending emails to multiple users.


Thank you

SPD workflow doesn't send email to user in list when automatically started

Hi all,

My first post here and I hope someone out there could kindly help. I recently found out a strange issue with my SPD workflow. Basically, it couldn't send out email if (1) the recipient resides in the list and (2) the workflow is automatically started.

For example, I have a list with a "user" field. A workflow first "Send an email" to this user, and then "Collect data from a user" from this user. If the workflow is set to start automatically, then this user gets no email. Tasks list does contain a task, but the "Assigned To" field of the task is empty. This is the case no matter if the user field is of type "Single line of text" or "Person or Group".

Everything's fine if I manually start the workflow. And everything's fine if the user is directly spelled out (jay@company.com) in the "Send an email" and "Collect data from a user" actions instead of retrieved from the list. Either case the user would get two emails as expected, and the "Assigned To" field would display the user name properly.

I looked into the log but didn't find anything special. As you can imagine, this is breaking a lot of our workflows and making SPD workflow look very bad. It's just not
