Changes to fields in workflow not published RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I set a project field in a workflow, the new value is not visible until someone modifies the project in PWA.

    Is there a way to have the workflow publish the modification ? I have not found any publish, commit, or other action that could do this.

    I have a suipport call at Microsoft about this. But, I was wondering if someone had a work around.

  • Yes it can be done via the VS workflow, and Guillaume's first link above refer you to the Visual Studio Workflows and publish methods.

    I cannot say why MS chose not to give us  Publish action in a SPD workflow. Thoertically, I am told, that one could build a custom activity for on prem and CSOM for online, but I have not tried either.
