Mit SharePoint Designer 2010 lassen sich Workflows einfach und schnell in SharePoint erstellen. Natürlich nicht für alle Einsatzfälle - wie immer im SharePoint Designer heißt es: für kleinere Anwendungen geeignet, aber je umfangreicher der Prozess wird, desto schneller stößt man an die Grenzen.

Aber mit selbst entwickelten WorkFlow Actions oder Aktivitäten kann man den Funktionsumfang erheblich erweitern und bei der Erstellung der Workflows den SharePoint Designer 2010 weiter verwenden.

Hier habe ich mal eine Sammlung von nützlichen Seiten und Tools zu diesem Thema zusammengetragen: wie entwickle ich eine Custom Action, wo gibt es freie, fertige Actions und wer bietet kommerzielle Lösungen an (gibt es nämlich alles)
