I have a list 'assess form' based on the information in that I have a super simple workflow to create a sharepoint calendar event.
How do I modify my workflow so that it will either update the calendar event IF the event fields change OR delete the old item and create a new one? (my preference would be to update the original if possible)
I am a fairly basic and beginner user so detailed explanations or screenshots would be insanely appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the Create Item action select Variables.
Select List item ID, give it a name, and click save.
Now use the variable in the Create item action in the "Store new item ID in" Field.
When the new item is created the action will store the item id of the new item.
You can update your list item with this ID. When you need to update the Calendar item you can reference this ID to make sure you are updating the correct item.
Thanks so much for that, so where it has update I have 'engineering services site visits' this is the calendar I want the entry updated in. The 'where' field I'm a little unsure of? Is the above correct to update my calendar entry? I can't see a field 'list item ID' which is what I named my variable in the create item workflow?
Your action for the second workflow would look like this.
I did this in SharePoint 2010 as based on your screen shot it looks like what you are using.
