SharePoint Interview Questions and Answers: Workflows

SharePoint Foundation 2010 workflows are made available to end-users at the list or document-library level. Workflows can be added to documents or list items. Workflow can also be added to content types.
Multiple workflows may be available for a given item. Multiple workflows can run simultaneously on the same item, but only one instance of a specific workflow can run on a specific item at any given time.
For example, you might have two workflows, called “SpecReview” and “LegalReview”, available for a specific content type, Specification. Although both workflows can run simultaneously on a specific item of the Specification content type, you cannot have two instances of the “LegalReview” workflow running on the same item at the same time.

Feature Receivers in SharePoint 2007/2010/2013

When used it:
The Feature Receivers can be used If you want to perform any action programmatically using C# code like when feature is installed, uninstalled, activated or deactivated.
e.g. I will share one of my best experience about on feature receivers when it’s most required.
Task: I want to develop one custom master page and set that master page as default master page to the site.
Sol: Below are my development approaches on it.
  1. First created a custom master page using existing master page through SharePoint designer.
  2. Deployed that custom master page to the master page gallery using “Feature”.
  3. Finally, write c# code to set our masterpage as default master to the site using “feature receiver”[means I wrote c# code to set our custom master page as default master page inside of “FeatureActivated” event]. Here the feature receiver will run whenever the feature is activated.

Content Types in SharePoint

What is a Content type?
  • Content types are reusable collection of metadata.
  • Content types are available at site collections and site level. When you create a content type and add it to a site's content type collection, the new content type becomes available to any child site and also to the site where it was created.
  • You never create a content type from scratch. Instead, you always select an existing content type as the basis for any new content type that you create.
  • When you add a content type to list. Microsoft SharePoint foundation makes a local copy of site content type and adds the local copy to the list. This local instance is called "List Content type".
  • To add a content type to a list, you must have List Administrator rights to that list.
