.ACTIONS File Example (WorkflowInfo)

Last modified: July 15, 2011

Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013

This example shows the general structure of a valid .ACTIONS file that can be used to import custom conditions and actions into a declarative, rules-based code-free workflow editor, such as Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010.

The following XML is an example of how an .ACTIONS file could be constructed to add Conditions or Actions elements to the default list.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<WorkflowInfo Language="en-us">
   <Conditions And="and"
