Disable Task List for Workflows MOSS 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a custom workflow attached to a custom list. While adding a workflow to a list, it have options to choose the respective task list and a history task list.

    Can we disable these two lists if we dont want any logs to be kept.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Veena,

    Task List and History List are used where information about the workflow is stored. History list is a hidden list.

    I afraid , you cannot disable these option. What is your exact requirement and why you want to disable this feature of workflows ?

    Incase I can give you a workaround.


    Thanks, Ali Yasir

  • Hi Ali,


    Thanks for the quick response.

    The details of the requirement is in the link:


    I read somewhere that the issue can be because of the Task list. We have around 300 rows of records to import in a single shot.

    One thing i watch is that the sharepoint timer service is automatically stopping during the period of the workflow execution.

    Many workflows are still @ starting status and not updating further.

    One more query on the "SharePoint Timer Service" account (run->services.msc->Sharepoint Services Timer) what should be the logon value , whether it should be local system account or specific account.

    Is the workflow having issues because of this.

    Please advice

    Thanks in advance
