Sharepoint Delay Activity Timer

Sharepoint Delay Activity is rounded off to the minute interval that is setup for ‘job-workflow’ property. This is because the job is responsible for waking up the workflow at the specified time. This job is usually set to run every 5 minutes. It is easy to change (increase or decrease) this value. To get the current job interval value: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\stsadm -o getproperty -pn job-workflow -url http://siteaddress< Or to change it every minute C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\stsadm -o setproperty -pn job-immediate-alerts -url http://siteaddress -pv "every 1 minutes between 0 and 59" Just be careful about this on production server, as it would create extra load if set to 1 minute interval.

CallStack="true" ...> <customErrors mode="Off" /> <compilation batch="true" debug="true"> All three of the modifications are required for full debug output.

Create a SharePoint Content Type programmatically

Sometimes it is necessary to create a Sharepoint Content Type by code, specially when batch creating content types.  The following code snippet shows how a sharepoint content type can be created in C#.  I have also included some not-so-simple field types like choice and lookup. using (SPSite p_site = new SPSite(urlToSite)) { using (SPWeb p_web = p_site.OpenWeb()) { SPContentType CustomContentType = new SPContentType(p_web.AvailableContentTypes["ParentContentType"], p_web.ContentTypes, "MyContentType"); // A string Field p_web.Fields.Add("NumberColumn",
