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?
...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". We
are putting our heads around on how to create this rule but could not
achieve a result.
Can someone guide us to the right direction?
We will appreciate your help.
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

If I do that to the desktop, I get a prompt asking me if I want to
move, copy, or create a shortcut.
I thought it used to work like that into a task as well.
Today, when I tried it, I got no prompt and the document was copied to
a temporary location (\Temporary Internet Files\OLK19). It isn't a
shortcut, but a copy of the document, which is worse than useless.

...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

You won't be able to this by workflows. You'll need to write custom code to
trap the Update event.

I am trying to create a workflow that sends email to a lead on the

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,

Sales...triggering a workflow activity when another workflow is finished
I have a workflow in CRM 4.0 that has 2 steps - the first step runs a
child workflow and the second step sends out an email dependent on the
first step's results.
Unfortunately, the second step starts before the child workflow in the
first step is completed - not what I want to do. How do I make the
second step wait for the child workflow to finish?
