Workflow, Highest Rated Discussion Board Post, and Announcements RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to get my Announcements feed to automatically create a new post daily with what the currently highest rated discussion board post is. The goal is to keep folks interested in a crowd sourcing initiative and to show off what some of the current ideas are. 

    I am attempting to create a workflow to do this, but I am at a loss.

  • Do you use SharePoint 2013 onpremise?

    As I know, there is no SPD workflow action to query? If you just want to use workflow, you can try to use Call HTTP Web Service action to get highest post (not sure if it is feasible)

    I suggest you implement a daily timer job or a console application to query and create new post, use server object model is fine.
