How to use workflow which comes along with list template?


  • Hi All,

    I just created a list using list template and noticed workflow also created along with it. But now, when I do some changes in the workflow, also updates the original list workflow where the template is taken from. How to reattach to the current list? thanks in advance

  • Hi SamDany,

    Only reusable workflow can be associated to the different lists in the same time. So, the workflow of the original list cannot be reattached to another list.

    If you just update the original list workflow, it will not update the workflow of the list created from list template.

    You could save the original list again as the list template and create a new list from the new list template. Then you could use the updated workflow in the new list.

    You also could consider creating reusable workflow.

    Best regards,
