Video Tours of HarePoint Workflow Extensions


This video demonstrates the deployment of the HarePoint Workflow Extensions and installation of the Product Client`s Components for Microsoft Visio and Visual Studio. 

Getting Started

Authoring a simple workflow with Microsoft Visio and SharePoint Designer; demonstration of the HarePoint Workflow Extensions toolbar in Microsoft Visual Studio. There is an example with simple workflow in Visio that checks all new calendar entries and, if a file is attached to an entry, sends it back by email to the user and his manager with a notification that will contains the explanation of the request denial. Then it removes the attachment from the entry in calendar.

Image Processing Workflow

This video will demonstrate how to create a workflow that checks a file`s format when it is added to a document library, and if it is an uncompressed image, TIFF or BMP for instance, it is converted to JPG automatically. In addition to checking the file format and image conversion, this workflow obtains information about the model of camera used to take the photo and places that data in a special column in the document library.

Generate and send Invoices

In this video we will show you how to generate and send PDF files automatically using a SharePoint Workflow. An invoice is generated and sent as soon as a new item is added to the list. This workflow cannot be created using only the standard actions and conditions available in SharePoint, so we use actions from HarePoint Workflow Extensions for SharePoint.

Generating invoices using data from SQL database

In one of the previous videos, we showed you an example of generating invoices using data from SharePoint library. In this part we will demonstrate that you can also obtain data from an SQL database with the use of SharePoint Workflow Extensions for SharePoint.

Obtaining data from XML sources

In this video we will create a Workflow which facilitates obtaining data from XML sources. As a data source, we will use an XML file located on the web-site of the European Central Bank. This XML file contains current exchange rates relative to the euro.
