In this article, the author covers the new features in SharePoint 2010 geared for workflow developers and thenÃÂ walks the readerÃÂ through a couple of new user scenarios.
MSDN Magazine November 2009
We have a very simple workflow whereby an document placed in a public library (INBOX) is moved it to a private library (VERIFY) and then deleted. The workflow works correctly when someone who has access to the VERIFY library drops a record into the INBOX
library. However it does not work when the user does not have access to the VERIFY library.
I was told that I need to "set the AD group associated with a specific SharePoint workflow" but cannot find any reference to this in SPD.
I have a custome workflow coded in VS 2005 and deployed in to GAC and associated to a List in the SharePoint Portel through MS SharePoint Designer.
When an Exception happened in the code, the worklow instance' Status is shown as "Error Occured" and get suspended. since this workflow instance is "hung up" at this list item another instance of the workflow can't run. To run another instance you have to go into the SP Portal --> List and click on the "Error Occured" under the workflow of the item and then you have to terminate the workflow by clicking on the "Terminate this workflow now" link.
I just need to do this function ("Terminating the workflow") in the code in my Catch block where i handle the exception of the workflow activity.
could some one please tell me how to do this? or even point me in the right direction?
i've so far tried varity of:
We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a MicrosoftÃÂ Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflowÃÂ (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.
For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).
In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:
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.
In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:
SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);
//resolve any lookup parameters
string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);
//find workflow association by name
SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssoc = currentList.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName(workflowId, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture);
if (workflowAssoc != null)
//start the workflow
SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);
And workflow #2 will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified to Completed.
I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay
I have a document content type and a library which contains this content type. here is what I want to do:
- when user creates a new document in this library, he will enter some user names with people picker and then a message including some columns of the content type will be sent to that users. And then, at a certain
date (lets say 1 day before a date that is one of the site columns) another email, a reminder will be sent.
I havent been able to find :
1- how can I replace a people picker field on workflow initiation form and how can I make it sent email to the user.
2- How can I make it sent a reminder email 1 day before the date that is stored in one of the columns of the content type(current item)
any help would be welcome,

In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.
In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details
