  • Hi Rajendra,

    Per my test, the Collect parameter during can only be set for reusable workflows and global reusable workflows in SharePoint Designer.

    And in my environment, this setting is not disabled.

    Could you please check if the issue occurs with all the reusable workflows?

    You can also create a new reusable workflow for testing and narrowing down the issue scope.

  • Hi Victoria,

    I tried multiple times, still the same.

    here is my step to reproduce the issue.

    1.open site in designer

    2.Click on reusable workflow from the ribbon, it will ask the workflow name and choose the platform type SharePoint2013 workflow.

    3.workflow will be open, click on initiation form parameters in the ribbon, and it will open the dialog as shown  in below screen.

    If i want to add association parameter to use in my workflow and i will give value to the parameter when i am associating the workflow to list, so how would i do it.

  • Hi Rajendra,

    Per my further research, the "Collect parameter during" only can be set for SharePoint 2010 reusable workflows.

    So for a SharePoint 2013 reusable workflow, it is disabled by design.

    As a workaround, you may need to use SharePoint 2010 reusable workflow instead.

    Victoria
