    Check user in group


    i'm creating a workflow with multiple folders where i move the document from folder to folder.

    What u want to do is this:
    an user creates a document and the workflow is starting. If the user is in group 1, then move the document to the folder Sales, if he's in group 2 move to folder IT, ...
    I do the move after an approval of the user, if he approve the document, it should move to the right folder.

    But how can i check if an user is in a (sharepoint) group?

    tnx in advance

    Hi endeka,

    try the Call Web Service action, and make a call to the SharePoint UserGroup.asmx web service.  There is a web method there that should help you get what you need,

    tnx! indeed, with the call web service action i have an xml result of all the groups where my user is.

    How can i now use this information so that i can use an if or something else to check if he's in a specific group?

    Hi endeka,

    the UserGroup webservice actually has a GetGroupCollectionFromUser web method. You may be able to call that, get the results and then see if the name of your group is in there.

    The Set a Condition action has the ability to check whether some text "contains" some other text.  That might be the easiest way to do it.
