Visio 2016 and Sharepoint 2010 - IMAGES CONTAINED
« on: December 30, 2017, 02:22:25 AM »
Ok I'm new to Visio and fairly intermediate on sharepoint. Currently using Visio 2016, Sharepoint Designer 2013, and my company's Sharepoint is 2010 I believe. I hope I am posting in the right place but I am running into issues when it comes to Workflows.

First I designed this workflow:

It worked.....except it did both flows. I tried to rearrange it in Sharepoint designer with an Else-If statement on the Approval and Reject.

If Current Item:Approval Status equals 0;#Approved
then Stop the workflow and log APPROVED
Else if Current Item:Approval Status equals 1;#Rejected
Delete item in Current Item
then Email Current Item:Created By
then Stop the workflow and log Rejected

And I got a bunch of errors: (0, 0) Activity 'ID19' validation failed: Property "Condition" has invalid value. Condition expression is invalid. Target object for method "Compare" can not be null.)

There are 28 of them. All with different ID##.

So I redesigned the workflow a couple of different times.
Same result. Just a bunch of errors on publiish attempt.

Now I have this. And I am wondering if it would be good.

But I am just asking for help. I am using the Actions/Conditions/Terminators within Visio 2016 for Sharepoint 2010. I have tried googling and it is all over the map with information. Any help would be appreciated. At this point I would be willing to set up a TeamViewer meeting. HA!

I am also having other issues with Sharepoint I have questions on. But that can be saved for later or at another forum.

What I want it to do:

Person out in the field submits a record for suppression. (Remove from the system) Reason has to be a valid reason not just because. They fill out the form, Record #, Last Name, First Initial, and reason for suppression and they hit submit.

I get an email with a task to Approve/Reject Record for suppression.

1. I hit approve, email gets sent to Personnel for suppression (cc creator of list item). Workflow Stops. Terminate.


2. I hit reject because their reason is stupid. They get an email saying it was rejected, item is automatically deleted from list, Workflow Stops. Terminate.

You might be better off asking in a Sharepoint forum rather than here ... However, maybe if you post a bit more of the code around your if statements.
