Create reusable workflows using SharePoint Designer 2010 - Connections Amsterdam 2011


Published on

SharePoint Designer 2010 lets you make powerful no-code reusable workflows. You can attach these workflows directly to a list, library or a content type. Instead of creating your workflows from scratch every time, you can reuse this workflow in as many places as you need. Not just that, but you can easily make this workflow available throughout the site collection as a global workflow. Want to take your reusable workflow to a different site collection or even a different SharePoint farm? Not a problem. We'll show you in this session how all this and more is possible using SharePoint Designer 2010.
