We have a InfoPath Form Library with Visual Studio Workflows on an MOSS 2007. Now to some of the form we're missing tasks in the tasklist and there isn't a status in the column of the workflow.
But the workflow had been started ... we're noticing, that all the affected forms have in common that the workflow (and the tasks of course) was finished.
Has somebody an idea what happened? Is there maybe a process or a setting that "cleans up" finished tasks and workflows?
I have an InfoPath form that starts a workflow (on item created). The business requirement is that after submission form must be read-only (no changes to the initial request can be made). However workflow must change certain properties of the form (e.g. approval time, approval phase etc.). By default SharePoint workflows run under initiator account, however I am wondering would you recommend creating an event handler that is going to kick start a workflow under system account. Workflow would than be able to revoke all the contribute privileges but still be able to update the form during
SharePoint workflow by nature is document centric in that you have to have a 'thing'; A object for the workflow to run on. This object can be a document, form or simple list item but this thing has to exist as the anchor and context of the workflow. What I've started thinking about is a more abstract sort of workflow and how it would be useful in SharePoint. Workflows are user driven processes... or automatic creation of an accident list item. Now the process will need to have a set of official forms filled in by various people. This is where I find SharePoint limiting me with it's document centric
I have a requirement to design a multi level approval workflow using SPD 2007. The workflow has three levels of approval. If the 1st or 2nd or 3rd level of approvers rejects the task it should go back to the previous level of user to continue with the same workflow instance. The workflow should not stop since when the InfoPath form is updated in the Forms library, a new WF instance will be created if there is no active task on that workflow. Has anyone worked on a similar requirement? If yes, please let me know. Also, let me know if it is possible to move back and forth between workflow
I have a custom windows service, which supposed to check expired workflow tasks and send them back to the originator (run new workflow) plus then cancels the originator`s expired workflow completely. My problem is how I reference BIN directory DLLs in windows service? I have all my worfklow interfaces there... I GACed those interfaces there and tried again...it went further... No it throws that it cant find workflow DLLs: 07/27/2010 11:25:10.92 CheckerService.exe (0x12F4) 0x1400 Windows SharePoint Services Workflow Infrastructure 75yn Unexpected Load Workflow Assembly
I've been reading that SharePoint 2010 does not support Windows Workflow Foundation 4.0 (WF4). Is it true??? If yes, does that mean we cannot design WF4 workflows in VS2010 and use them in SP2010? Or is it feasible? Will it be supported in a SharePoint service pack?
I am trying to create a workflow on SharePoint 2007 that should go like so: User adds a new item in the "Faults" list. When creating it, he ticks the boxes for whatever departments needs to address the fault. The appointed representative of each selected department is assigned a task to check the new item. The represenative marks the task as complete. All tasks are completed and the workflow is finished. The problem: if I create a workflow in SharePoint Designer 2007 and create multiple steps checking to see "if X department was ticked then assign task to user", it will wait until
I'm looking at building a solution that will use this as it's base: Content Types as Statuses and I'd like to know if it's possible to create a DVWP form that only allows the first form, eg the initial status, to be filled out. After the initial status is created, when displaying the form, have a workflow button connect to an initiation form, which will in turn update the item and content type. I'll need to not let the form display the 2nd or 3rd status until the first is completed. Is this possible? Or a better question, does this question make sense LOL?
I have an initial workflow in Sharepoint Designer that triggers whenever an item is created and also whenever an item has changed in the 'Employee' list . Within second workflow I am updating the 'Employee' list and the workflow above is triggered. Is there any way I can check in the intial workflow if the item has been updated by a user or if it was updated by a workflow. In the case if the item was updated by a workflow I would not want to trgigger it. Many Thanks,
form? What kind of workflow do I use? When do I start the workflow(s)? What do I use to develop the workflow(s)? How do I handle rights when showing the listview with all requests? How can I build...I'm a starting sharepoint developer asked to implement the following scenario in sharepoint 2010. We're a bit lost on the best approach to get started.. I'm really struggling to find the best practise solution. This is the requested flow: A user can make a request with a title and a description. A mail gets sent to the representative with a link to a form. A representative can approve
