SPD Workflows?

Jan 7, 2012 at 6:28 AM

I've installed the Site Directory For SharePoint 2010 without any problems and it seems to work fine. However, I'm trying to creativly categorize the list data to surface through some webpart views using SPD workflows.

My workflows work fine if I manually start them on the list item, but they do not seem to auto start as configured.

If I manually add an item, it works fine; however, if I let the service add the item (when it does a scan) the workflow does't start. Any thougths/ideas?

Ok... I think I figured this out. Essentially it is because delaritive workflows do not activate on items created with a system account.

A workaround to this issue is listed here:
