HarePoint Workflow Extensions 2.11: introducing new actions and features


HarePoint Workflow Extensions offers over 300 ready-to-use actions for workflow authoring in Microsoft SharePoint Designer and Microsoft Visio. We are glad to present Version 2.11, with a broad range of changes including the following new workflow actions and condition.

New workflow actions for SharePoint

  • Find Group in Active Directory workflow action finds a SharePoint Group in Active Directory and store the user's logon name in the output variable.
  • If SharePoint Group Exists workflow condition checks if the specified SharePoint group exists.
  • Update Recurring Exchange Calendar Item has been added to the list of Exchange activities.

Embed images into SharePoint e-mails

SharePoint workflow activities for sending e-mails messages now supports embedding image files using [img] tags. This can be useful for managing advanced signatures or corporate disclaimers.

Rich text fields in SharePoint based forms

Using improved methods of converting rich text field into DOCX document, it is now possible to use advanced text formatting. For example: using the Update Word Document action you can set up an online survey form using different text colours in the input fields. Now a generated Microsoft Word document with survey results will have all text formatting settings saved in it.

SharePoint Workflow Actions for Excel files

Starting in version 2.11 of HarePoint Workflow Extensions, Office activities can work with .XLSX documents directly without using Excel Web Services. This will make spreadsheet related activities easier to setup and use.

More changes in the new version:

  • New Scope parameter added to the Find List Item by Caml action.
  • Copy or Move Document and Copy or Move Folder actions: new options added for scenarios when error occurred during workflow execution.
  • Copy List Item at Url updated.
  • User Principal Name parameter added to Create User in Active Directory action. This allow generating longer login names (UPN) up to 64 symbols.
  • SSL set by default in Email Workflow activities to comply with actual security requirements.
  • Get Field Value at Url fixed: empty string or 0 used now in case the specified field value is empty.
  • Create List Item at Url: spaces in path and URL trailing slash support added.
  • OpenXML Libraries updated to the latest version for better handling of DOCX and XLSX files.
  • The full list of changes is available at HarePoint Workflow Extensions version history page.

In addition, HarePoint would like to remind you about our new product: Workflow Manager Extensions for SharePoint 2016 / 2013 for authoring workflows on the 2013 workflow platform.
