Custom Workflow in SharePoint Designer 2010

In this article I am showing a demonstration of SharePoint custom Designer 2010 workflows

1. First of all open your SharePoint 2010 site in SharePoint 2010 Designer

2. Go to file point to Add Item


3. Now create a new workflow. We can choose from one of the following workflow types:

  • List Workflow - this type of workflow can be attached only to SharePoint lists or libraries. This kind of workflow can be useful if your requirements are specific to list or document library
  • Reusable Workflow: It is more complex than List work flow it can be attached to a content type. Later this content type can be used with a list. One more advantage of this type of work flow is you can imported to Visual Studio and we can write code to enhance this type of workflow
  • Site Workflow - this type of workflow operates on site level.
  • Import Visio Workflow-Another flexibility that SharePoint Designer 2010 giving is the flexibility to import Visio workflow.
