This is the second post of the series related to SPD 2013 Workflows. In this post I will show you how to implement custom ASP.Net task form and embed it into your workflow. Some parts of this task are straightforward; However, there are several pitfalls and changes from SP2010.
This is the first post of the series related to SPD 2013 Workflows. During this series we will create and improve a solution based on SPD 2013 Workflows.
As you most likely know, SP2013 has possibility to use the new workflow system (based on Workflow Manager). However, it is impossible to use InfoPath task forms with it. In addition, API which we could use for communication with 2010 Workflows doesn’t work for 2013 ones. In this series of posts I want to show you how to create SP2013 workflow, customize its task forms and implement some typical features like reassigning of the task or Request Changes/Task another person with supplying additional information behaviors.
My name is Mikhail Pushin and this is my blog where I want to share information about developing for SharePoint 2013. After moving to SP2013 I could see lack of information about some parts of SP 2013 development, especially, about new SP2013 workflow platform and moving from InfoPath to ASP.Net forms. Here I want to share solutions for typical tasks that I have found. Hope this information will be useful for you!
