"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
You can no longer check the file type on a document library with SharePoint 2013 Workflows. Luckily this action is still available in 2010 workflows. So, use my solution above to get around this issue.
Create a new SharePoint 2010 Site Workflow.
Create Initiation Form Variables on the SharePoint 2010 Site Workflow for any information you need to pass in (ex: who to set permissions to)
Call the 2010 Workflow using the new Start Site Workflow action in the SharePoint 2013 Workflow
Pass any variables from your 2013 side in to the Initiation Form Variables you setup on your 2010 Workflow
The above steps I just laid out are going to be for most of the issues I talk about in this blog. So, it’s important to understand them. In addition, it’s important to understand the “Start Site Workflow” action and the “Start List Workflow” action in SharePoint 2013 are horribly labeled. They only start 2010 workflows. Should have been called Start 2010 Site Workflow in my humble opinion.
