Easier SharePoint Workflows


This is just a repost of this blog (link) about custom workflow activities that I found really useful.

Here are just some of the things that are accomplished with this:

  • Send Email with HTTP File attachment – Allows sending emails with attachments retrieved using a web request
  • Send Email with List Item attachments – Allows sending list item attachments as files attached to an email
  • Start Another Workflow – Starts another workflow associated with a list item
  • Lookup user info – allows to lookup properties in site’s user information list for a given login

  • During my work in Afghanistan for CSTC-A, one of my biggest selling points to them for upgrading to MOSS 2007 was workflows. I really wish there were more workflows packaged but we ended up having to spend a lot of time creating them from scratch. It was time consuming because we were still dealing with post-upgrade things like training for end users. This CodePlex project is really a great tool that every SharePoint Architect/Engineer should keep handy.
