Copy workflow and use for a new list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    i use sharepoint designer and i have a workflow designed to track issues using a list. the workflow triggers emails on issues that cross timelines.

    i wanted the same kind of workflow to be designed for a diffrent list with diffrent columns. Is there a way to copy the workflow and use it for the new list with just changes the condition coloumns and recepiants since all other features(timelines) are the same.

  • Hi Anand,

    For this issue, you can do the below steps. First, backup the original workflow ( you might need it if you make a mistake ) to another folder.
    Second, manually edit WORKFLOWNAME.xoml file with notepad and replace ListID with the ID of the new list.
    Third, manually edit WORKFLOWNAME.xoml.wfconfig.xml with notepad and replace ListID with the ID of the new list.

    Last, manually changes the columns to the columns of new list.
