Workflow visualization option in Share point 2013 workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    "Show workflow visualization on status page option" is available in share point 2010 workflow. But it is not available in share point 2013 workflow. I've checked site collection features & site features the feature representing visio services is started but i can't find the option in designer.  Is there any way to enable this option? or is it permanently disabled?

  • Hi Sethupathy,

    Yes, “Show workflow visualization on status page” option is not available in SharePoint workflow 2013. It is by design.

    You can create workflow 2010 in SharePoint 2013. Because the workflow 2010 also can work in SharePoint 2013. And workflow has the “Show workflow visualization on status page” option.

    More reference:

    SharePoint 2013 workflows in Visio.
