Workflow PostURL error/bug - timeout

Is there a way to set the timeout for a PostURL workflow step. We have
noticed that if the PostURL takes more than 8-10 seconds to complete, then
the workflow step becomes paused in the workflow monitor.

We have created the following simple web service that can be used to
reproduce the problem.  Create a new web service or ASP page and paste the
following function to reproduce the problem. your times may vary, but when
we pause for 10 seconds then the workflow step becomes paused in the
workflow monitor.


<WebMethod()> Public Function SendEmail(ByVal accountid As String)  As
String
Try
 'System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500) ' works
 'System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5000) ' works
 'System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(10000) ' failed
 System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(20000) ' failed
Catch e As Exception
 'Dim mylog As New EventLog()
 ' mylog.WriteEntry(e.Message)
End Try
End Function

workflow assembly vs. workflow bulk import
hi, i have a question concerning the account the workflow service is supposed to run at. I developed a Workflow Assembly which creates an Activity in CRM. I realized - maybe because of bad configuration - that the workflow service has to be run at a crm user account to work. Is this true or is local system also possible? Because now we realized that Bulk import only works when the Local System account is used for Workflow Service. Big Problem. Anybody with a similar problem and a resolution? martin ...

Help requested to construct this workflow rule...
We have a custom field on Account Detail screen where "Contract Expiry Date" is captured. We would like to create a work flow rule which will send an alert email to the Account Owner six months before the "Contract Expiry Date".

I'm not sure if this works on custom attributes, haven't tested that. But, if it does then you could do this using a "Wait for Timer" condition. You set the time...

Is there a 'RecordChanged' event in workflow manager?
I'm not finding it if there is. I need to have CRM send Account and Incident info to BizTalk whenever the record changes, and someone suggested I write a workflow rule that posts account info to a URL to accomplish this. However, all I can find is a Status Change event that is not very useful for this. If anyone has a better idea, please don't be shy and let me know :) Also, after I save and activate the rule, it doesn't show up in the workflow monitor. thanks, Daniel. You can create a post callout for post-update. BK "Daniel Rimmelzwaan" <rimmelzwaan@xhotmail.c...

Money 2004 bugs
I have just spent a rather unpleasant hour with Money 2004 doing a task that used to take me 15 minutes with Quicken -- downloading and categorizing my MBNA credit card statement. Problem 1: if you have multiple uncategorized transactions in the download with exactly the same payee, when you enter the category for the first, the other transactions don't inherit this information. You have to enter it for each (not so in Quicken). Problem 2: sometimes when you display a transaction for categorizing, the payee line is doubled, as is the line with the accept and enter buttons. Problem 3: Mo...

Workflow email off of custom entity
I am trying to create a workflow that sends email to a lead on the creation of an attached, custom entity. My specific case is: internet user requests information from the website. They sign up to receive the information, and what they enter on the sign-up gets put into a lead. They then request a specific item, and this gets placed into a custom entity in CRM. Now, when the custom entity is created, I want to trigger an email to be sent to the person that just requested it, which is stored on the lead. This would work if I could call a manual workflow as a subprocess from a different ent...
