    hello good day,

    Thanks for this. im having difficulty using your steps. I downloaded a wsp file called customworkflowactivitiesproject.wsp which contains all the workflow actions in dp.sharepoint.workflow.wsp , and when publishing the workflow I get this error

    The type or namespace name 'Custom' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?))

    How do I get the correct namespace and assembly name to perform the same steps you did ?

    I followed all of the above. This is still not working in my 2013 SharePoint Environment. Please advise. Could not deserialize object. The type 'DP.Sharepoint.Workflow.SendEmailExtended' could not be resolved.

  4. We are als trying to use the custom action "Copy Item Extended". This is also not working for us. It throws the same error :
    "The type or namespace name 'DP' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference)."

    in sharepoint 2013.

  5. Could you republish the web config changes in steps 3 and 4 above. They appear to be missing.

    View source on the page and you'll find the missing info inside PRE tags. I tried getting it out and pasting it in a comment, but it disappears in that as well.

  8. I followed all the steps you mentioned above but still when I try to publish the workflow, it gives me error :
    "(0, 10) The type or namespace name 'DP' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?))".
    Is there any other way of doing it in SharePoint 2013. Any other custom build workflow activties like this CodePLex Solution. ??

  9. Wow, great blog.Thanks Again. Cool.
