workflow: mail being sent daily


  • Hi, I am getting an e-mail from daily about a terminated employee.

    I am new to share point designer and workflows.

    Is there a way to stop that e-mail from being sent daily?

  • Hi,

    Please check if there is any workflow associated to it and remove the email action from it.

  • Hi junhyungkim- do you know where the email is coming from? IE: was it a news story in a list or something? If you know, you should just be able to delete the workflow associated with the list, or delete the item in the list that's causing the email to be sent.

  • Cameron, I cannot delete the workflow itself since it will be used whenever an employee submits a vacation leave.

  • By delete, I mean stop it. Remove it from the list, then re-deploy it so it runs again for new entries. Either way, you need to stop it from running on that particular list item. Best way is to delete the item.

  • Go to the site where employee submits the leave request, find the item created by the terminated employee. Select the item, click on the ellipsis (...) then click on Workflows. You should see a workflow instance with state started or something else, there is should be link which will say "Terminate this workflow" click on that, this should stop your incoming emails. You need to do the same steps if multiple requests are created by the employee.
