Delay activity in workflows

  Asked By: Denny    Date: Sep 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3026

We are suffering from delay activity in windows workflow (and derivates in
sharepoint like delayuntil, delayfor).

I have installed the public hotfix but still nor working.

Here is what we would like to do:

In a sequential workflow at some point we will continue after a value from db is
changed to some specific value.

This change may be after some days. What I was planning was to check the value
in the time intervals of 1 hour or so,

If I got the delay working.

Any alternative ideas to achieve this?

We had this same issue a short while ago. Setting the delay  activity timeout
duration in the properties window should always work. However to be able to set
it in code you need to set the delay activity  Timeout Duration for 1 minute in
the properties window then in code set the duration to the time  span needed.
This has worked for us.

Well my delay  is not so time  critical. We are setting the delay activity  timeout
duration from properties windows  but still not working.
