Intro to Declarative Workflows

On March 24, 2016 I presented at the Calgary SharePoint and Office 365 Users Group on the subject of Declarative Workflows in SharePoint.  A copy of the presentation can be found on their site here.

Topics included what a workflow is, why you might want to consider setting some up in your SharePoint environment (from 2007 to 2016, whether on premise or in O365), and some tricks and tips that I have discovered over the course of the last 8 years of building declarative WF solutions for multiple clients.

The deck also includes some links to a few more “complex” tasks such as how to get a value from another list based on a value in this workflow (lookups), create a workflow with elevated permissions by using the SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform, and how to Start a SharePoint 2010 Workflow Within a SharePoint 2013 Workflow.
