Hello,

I have a question ¨C maybe on the page http://wf.netfx3.com/ are some code samples.

I want to add a workflow to a SharePoint form library which can send e-mails. This e-mail consists out of an e-mail template and text from the form library.

Example: In InfoPath Form library are different InfoPath Forms (XML Files). I want to start a workflow now on the form which generates an e-mail with text like: ˇ°Dear Mr. <name>ˇ±. Name comes from the InfoPath form.

Note: At the end I want to develop this as a feature to make sure that deployment is on different SharePoint possible. So it is not recommend using SharePoint Designer. I have to take Visual Studio.

Have anybody ideas or examples

You can create a VStudio workflow containing the SendMail activity( http://wf.netfx3.com/files/folders/835/download.aspx) and deploy it as a feature.

If I remember correctly, you can send emails directly out of Sharepoint, so you should look at using the Workflow Extensions for Sharepoint to do this.   http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx familyid=5ddf902d-95b1-4640-b9e4-45440dc388d9&displaylang=en

Also - I think you HAVE to install this, plus VS 2005 on your SP server to get to all the SP assemblies.

You might also want to post in the Sharepoint Forums to get more info.

Regards,
Dave

Hey,

thanks for the link. Is there any tutorial to understand the solution In the readme.mht are only general informations about what the solution is doing. I'am lookin for information how to deploy this for a test and later where I have to make changes to implement my requieremnts as I wrote above.

Once again my requierments are:

  • Start e-mail send workflow out of SharePoint
  • Open a e-mail template with inserted meta data out of the inforpath form (xml file)

I don't think that this is a OOB feature in SharePoint, isn't it
