Adding an "All Day Event" calendar entry from a workflow

  Asked By: Conor    Date: Nov 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 11323

As a way of teaching myself some basic workflow in SPD I have created a
very simple Vacation calendar in WSS 3.0 using SPD. Everything works
perfectly except for one detail, part of the workflow dictates that when
the vacation is "Approved" and then "Completed" it adds the dates, title
and all day event to a calendar. Even though in SPD I can find the field
"All Day Event" and set it to "Yes" it doesn't add that to the calendar
entry. It only adds the dates and the title.

Any ideas on if "Yes" needs to be in a certain format? When I press the
"..." button in SPD to assign the value it only gives me the edit text
option.


Here is the basic setup if more details are needed let me know;

Standard list called "Vacation Request".
Workflow starts when a new item is created.
Step 1 - if "Status" equals "Requested" send "this message" then wait
for "status" to equal "approved" if/else wait for "status" to equal
"denied".
Step 2 - if "status" equals "approved" send "this message" then wait for
"status" to equal "complete" if/else if "status" equals "denied" send
"this message" then "stop workflow".
Step 3 - if "status" equals "complete" send "this message" then "create
list item" (in "vacation calendar" - to include title - start date - end
date - and All Day Event = Yes).

However the event that appears in the calendar is never set to an all
day event.
