The status of a workflow appears as "Failed to Start" when you try to start a workflow from a survey response in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Article ID: 926370

Article Last Modified on 5/14/2007



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
  • Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0



SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You create a survey, and then you add a workflow to the survey in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Then, you connect to the survey and respond to it. Finally, you view the response that you submitted, and then you try to start a workflow from the response. To do this, you click the arrow next to the response, click Workflows, click the workflow that you added, type your user name in the Reviewers box, and then click Start. However, the workflow does not start. Instead, the status of the workflow appears as Failed to Start.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because starting a workflow from a survey response is not supported in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Although the Workflows option appears when you click the arrow next to a survey response, you cannot start a workflow from a survey response.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
