How do I include a logo in an email response created by a workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • It seems some of us Microsoft Office Live Small Business developers are having a hard time finding exactly where we can ask more advanced questions. Advanced maybe for some of us but probably basic to those who are familiar with SharePoint designer, and more advanced features of SharePoint.  There is a MSDN for Microsoft Office Live Small Business but it seems like a ghost town, hopefully I will get better luck here.

    This is my situation, as some of you are probably aware OLSB is built upon SharePoint 3.0 and although it does not have the same full capabilities, we can still do such things as create workflows and the like using SharePoint designer.  My question is; when creating an email response using a workflow is there a simple way to include a logo in the email response, or what is the method practiced to have more freedom with the email sent, would I simply just use a look up and refer it to an image or something.  I am a little lost here and would greatly appreciate some help.  If I am in the wrong place for such a question please kindly redirect me.

    This is a time sensitive project I am working on so the sooner the better

    Much Thanks,

  • Welcome to the forum.  That question feels right for this forum (or maybe workflow).

    I would try to put an image tag, as in <img src=http://...>.

    Using SPD workflow email, you won't be able to embed an image, but you should be able to reference one.

  •   Just to explain this for Brian

    >That question feels right for this forum (or maybe workflow).

    in view of his original subject which was wondering if he had posted to the right forum.


    The Workflow forum is for all kinds of workflow questions (WSS built-in; MOSS built-in; SPD; Visual Studio; those involving InfoPath)

    The Design/Customization forum is for customization issues which means it's full of SPD questions. Questions on SPD workflows therefore just sneak in by the back door.


    Hint: If I see an SPD workflow post in say the General forum, I move it to the Workflow forum ...    (If it's here, I leave it)

  • You guys are great, thanks! It worked perfectly, well, almost perfectly :).  I’m ashamed to admit I did not know we could use HTML tags in the auto responder.  I’ll have other questions concerning this later, but first let me say that using that tag worked perfectly once of course I put the image in a non secure referenceable area, duh :).  Yet there is another challenge I came up with, which has been common and I sure hope you both can help me with this.

    This is the problem:  the solution you gave worked great for ME, but because I had already delivered the solution as a .olp file (Office Live’s packaging solution) and now this new one is uploaded to the clients site, I noticed that the workflow folders do not appear for me.  This has happened many times and I am not sure why it occurs.  Can either one of you help me with this?  This seems like a common issue with me.  Now when I check the site itself the “workflows” are there, but for some reason cannot be seen though SharePoint designer.  Where do the folders go, because they have to be there somewhere?

    My only go around for this is literally creating a new workflow and deleting the one I had created provisory even though they still work, but again are not viewable in SharePoint designer, so without being viable where would I go to modify them?

    Just to let you know I would of responded sooner but I must have had my settings to not contact me and just found out today that I had received a response to this trhead.

    Thanks again,

  • I really don't have any good ideas on this one.  I would re-post this as it's a different question and different people may see it / respond if it's under a new subject.
