Custom Workflow Action: Send to Records Center

with 7 comments

Our Custom Activity Pack contains actions that can be installed for use in Microsoft SharePoint Designer workflows. The latest version includes an action for sending documents and items to a Records Center site collection directly from your workflows.

The Custom Activity Pack is free and can be downloaded from GitHub:

Other custom actions in this pack include:

  • Start Workflow – Start another workflow for the item or document and return.
  • Call Workflow – Start another workflow and wait until that workflow has completed.
  • Halt Workflow – Halt another workflow executing against the item or document.
  • Restart This Workflow – great for implementing stateful workflows in SharePoint Designer
  • Is Workflow Running – check if another workflow is running against the item or document.

Here is the entire list of actions:

  2. Thanks Nick. I was just about to write one for sending to the record center when I thought I’d do a quick google to see if someone had already done one.

    Thankfully you had so that saved me a bit of time.

  3. Nick,
    Thanks for doing this work!
    I tried to download the pdf of the documentation, but I get an error when I try to open it.
    “cannot extract the embedded font ‘ABCDEE+Calibri,Italic’. Some characters may not display or print correctly.” Then I get this: “There was a problem reading this document(114)”. Then I get this: “An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly. Please contact the person who created the PDF document to correct the problem.”
    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    • update: looks like the one in the zip file is good. The problem I talked about above was with the standalone documentation.pdf file.
