SharePoint designer 2010 workflow not starting when item is updated

enter image description hereI have written two SharePoint 2010 designer workflows both of which send emails to external users. The problem is both workflows are not getting started when I update the list item. One workflow is of simple one step which sends email. Also I have put logs there when workflow starts and ends, but no logs are added to Workflow History list. There is also one error coming when I publish the workflow “Errors were found when compiling the workflow. The workflow files were saved but cannot be run.”. This workflows are built for SharePoint online list. Any help would be appreciated.

SharePoint 2010- A List is not appearing in Search result even it is crawled

I have created a new SharePoint site into my existing SharePoint Application, then i created many lists and libraries into this new site.

except one list all other Lists and Libraries of the site are appearing into SharePoint Search. As per the crawl logs this list has been crawled. I also checked this list’s settings, it is set to be available for search, but i don’t know why it not coming in Search results.

I waited for full crawl, even after that it is not appearing into the search result. Please help me to resolve this issue.

How to change the below explained validation from inline style to ms-form validation on migration from SP 2010 to SP 2013?

After migration from SharePoint 2010 to 2013, when we add an element and miss any mandatory field, we should get the validation errors.

But in my case, when I fill the Authorized Date field and miss any other mandatory field, then I get the validation errors in red as shown below:

enter image description here

And on inspecting the error message, we see that it is under ms-formvalidation class.

enter image description here

But when we miss the Authorized Date field and then try to add the item, we see this loading and it doesn’t stop:

enter image description here

So we edited the web part and changed the CSR rendering mode from Standard mode to Server Render mode and then clicked on Apply. We saw the following message displayed under Authorized Date field in black color:

enter image description here

And on inspecting it, we found it as an inline style:

enter image description here.

As per my understanding, If this is changed from inline to ms-formvalidation class, then the error will be resolved.

I need help on how to fix this and any other helpful suggestion on how to overcome the above mentioned problem.

Thanks in Advance.

Allow Office 2010 users to open docs from hyperlink in edit mode

I have SharePoint 2013 Designer Workflow which assigns tasks to users. In the email of the task I have added a direct link to the related document.

I was originally using [%Workflow Context:Current Site URL%][Workflow Context:Current Item URL%] as the hyperlink.

This was working fine for all users who had Microsoft Office 2013 installed. I ran into a problem when users with Microsoft Word 2010 clicked this link the document would open only in Read only mode – when they do have Edit rights on the document. The Enable Editing link was also not available.

I found a solution to add ms-word:ofe|u| to the hyperlink so now I’m using: ms-word:ofe|u|[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL%][Workflow Context:Current Item URL%] as the hyperlink. This is great in that it gets the document to Edit mode however it gives the user a Security Notice pop-up (for all users, including Word 2010, Word 2013, and including for the site collection administrators).

Here is a screenshot of the security warning: Security Notice

So then I found the following suggestion:

However it’s not working. People are still getting the Security Notice.

Any suggestions to avoid this security notice and just open the files in Edit mode from a hyperlink in an email?

Unable to publish a SharePoint 2010 workflow from SharePoint Designer 2013

I am working on a client requirement where I have to create List Workflows for O365 - SharePoint Online websites.

When I try publishing the workflow, I get an error which says – unexpected error while publishing workflow.

The workflow actually does not have any errors which may forbid it from being published but still I am getting this error. I have researched a lot on this but have not managed to get any fix for this.

Please help.
