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?

We have a custom field on Account Detail screen where "Contract Expiry

We would like to create a work flow rule which will send an alert email

achieve a result.
Can someone guide us to the right direction?
We will appreciate your help.

...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 can create a post callout for post-update.

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
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.

second step wait for the child workflow to finish?

Go to Settings > Workflows.
This will list all of your workflows by default, and should show a
column for "status" (draft or published).
You can change the view to show all workflows, or all published
workflows from the top right drop0down as with all views.
Note that you can't edit a published workflow without first unpublishing
it, for additional confirmation that it is in f...Sending Closed Case Emails using workflow rule
For some reason when I create a workflow rule for manually sending an email
when a case has been resolved, it does not send an email. I'm not quite sure
what else needs to be done. I added a condition while creating the rule,
which basically says when case status = "resolved", send email using template
"closed case acknowledgment". However, when I go in to test it and apply the
rule that I created and resolve the case, it does not send an email. Is
there something I'm doing wrong here?

The easiest way I can think of is updating the value directly in back-end.

You can think about a temporary workflow with your new logic to update the

I am in the process of creating the CRM and wanted to know if the
following is possible.
I want the ability to add some custom fields that do not need to be
filled in to create an initial lead. However, they do need to be
populated before you can move forward and convert it to an opportunity,
contact, or account.
The reason for this is becuase we want record of leads, but all
information may not be available at creation which is ok to us.
However, this cannot be turned into a Opportunity, Contact, or Account
until these are actually populated. Is there a way to "gray-out"
