Sharepoint Designer 2013 Workflow with two conditions including variable

I have two SharePoint list – One is funnel and other is decision register.
If certain condition is met in Funnel for that item, it will be moved to other list Decision Register.

I have following conditions to check in Funnel list –

  1. If Approval Status = CPO Approved and Decision Effective date is not blank then move to Decision Register list.
  2. If Approval Status = CPO Rejected then move to Decision Register List.

For first condition it is mandatory to have Decision effective date whereas for second when Rejected Decision Effective date is not applicable.

I tried with following code in SD 2013 but it is not working as desired. For first condition when date is empty and Approval Status is CPO approved, it is still moving to Decision Register.

Stage:Stage 1
Step: 1
    Set Variable: Decisiondate to Current Item:Decision Effective Date
    If Variable: Decisiondate is not empty value
    and Current Item:Approval Status equals CPO Approved
        Create item in M-Milestone Decision Register (Output to Variable: create3 )
        Delete item in Current Item
If Current Item:Approval Status equals CPO Rejected
    Create item in M-Milestone Decision Register (Output to Variable: create3 )
    Delete item in Current Item

Transition to stage
Go to End of Workflow

2013 – How to get data from videos in asset library?

Videos in an asset library are “hidden” in folders in an otherwise ordinary document library. The name you see in the library is the name of the folder, not the video. As you have probably already found the SharePoint library REST APIs, you just need to add the folder to the path.

See if this helps to find those details: https://techtrainingnotes.blogspot.com/2015/05/sharepoint-2013-asset-library-secrets.html

Microsoft.Office.Word.Server SharePoint 2013 Foundation – SharePoint Stack Exchange

I was wondering if someone could please confirm that my understanding of the following is correct:

The assembly ‘Microsoft.office.word.server‘ is part of the ‘Word Automation Services‘ service, which is not available as part of SharePoint 2013 Foundation.

Currently I am supporting a SharePoint 2013 Foundation environment on Windows Server 2012 where this error is being received when trying to use a 3rd party add-on (not installed by myself). The add-on developer have told us to install the assembly, however I don’t believe this is possible.

Is it possible to confirm if my understanding of this is correct, that would be great.

Thanks 🙂
