Workflow for the creation and editing of sites within a site collection

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hi there.

How would you go about creating a workflow for the creation and editing of sites within a site collection?

I'm assuming users would have different roles such as Approvers and Authors.

VS Workflow creation fails to be created on one site


This is a long shot, there must be many reasons for the failure

Its a 2007 site recently upgraded using database attach.

When I try to create any sort of workflow on a particular site VS2010 asks for the site name then the dialog box disappears with no error message.

  • Can create all other project types on this site
  • Site opens OK in browser and SP designer
  • Can create workflows on subsites

Anyone else experienced the same?



Activate Features on Site Collection creation via Site Template


I'm attempting to make my first Site Template, and I'm using some of the existing OOB template onet.xml files as a guide.  One thing I can't figure out is how to select which Features you want to be activated on the site collection creation from your template.

Also, how can you find a list of all available Features and the Scopes the are available for?

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!!


Share point database and site collection size, and restrictions and workflow


Sharepoint site collections


More Detail



We had a 3rd party into to develop the share-point service, This is really a very difficult situation not the solution but the documents that are stored and the way it was retrieved.


The real thing is that we receive an item it is booked into SAP and then we send an automated xml to set up a local site this site will then have details from the SAP system fed by ABAP. After the site is created, and then we add documents files and .jpg. These documents must show a detailed audit trail so that if challenged in a court of law can show who had access and who updated documents. 


SO the problem is 


1 Site Collection that is 170gig and the design means that we have 1600 sites and these contain images that are stored in the single site collection. How do we remove the full documents and images and replace with links rather than the doc, img. 


2. We have around 8 business units the problem is that they can share information acros

Designer Workflow: update list in another site within collection?

Is it possible with a Designer 2007 created workflow to update an list in another site within the same collection?  I don't see a way to do that and am wondering if I am missing something.

Sites Vs Site Collection in SharePoint 2013

A Site Collection in SharePoint is basically a collection of SharePoint sites that share common features like Content types, Templates, Site columns, permissions, Web Parts etc.

Site Collection Usage Summary: No Data Available


Usage analysis processing is enable for my farm in both Central Administration and in the SSP.

I've checked TImer Job Status and the three timer jobs responsible for doing the log analsis are all running.

I've also checked the log file locations and the log files are being generated.

Yet when I browse the "Site collection usage summary" report (SpUsageSite.aspx) I get the following:

No data is available for this report. Usage analysis might have been enabled only recently, or there might have been insufficient usage to result in any values for the report.

My farm is running 2007 Enterprise SP2 (

Can someone confirm if this issue was fixed with one of the CU's that were issues post-SP2?

Site Collection Usage Report Include Outlook?


Hi all,

Does anyone know if the Site Collection Usage Report includes activity that occurs from Outlook? For example, if a user contributes to a discussion board without ever physically touching the site or if the user just reads list content from Outlook, is this included?

ANY help at all is greatly appreciated.


Portal Search Work - Site Collection Search Does Not


In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.  However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to do local searches at the site collection level and as a result we are presented with the typical error below.


No results matching your search were found.

  1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
  2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
  3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
  4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.  We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.


Any thoughts to this?

Only crawl one site collection

Hi We have an intranet with about 100 site collections. How can I set up one of those to be in a separate content source that can be crawled more often? Do I need to make two content sources with one containing the other 99 site collections with the setting "Crawl only the SharePoint Site of each start address" and the other one containg my prioritized site collection with the same setting? I also would like to ask if the crawl rules have any effect on in which order the content is crawled. If I put a certain site to be included with order 1 will that site always be crawled first? //Niclas

site collection size

what is the solution of a site collection if its size grows beyond 100GB?  There is no way we can split it into two site collections and the content database will be large than 100GB even if it contains a signal site collection. Thanks in advance, Peter
