  • In SP Designer, right click the Workflow and Publish.

    Hope you have already created lists in the production system

  • Hi Hitchs,


    You can try to transforming the SharePoint Workflow to a visual studio .net workflow. This will allow you to package a workflow up as a feature and deploy and use it in multiple locations in your farm. For detail steps, you can refer to:

  • Hi,

    Then I would suggest you to have designer in production as well, since even after deploying it you will not be able to edit this out in browser.

  • Hi Pengyu,

      Thanks for ur reply. Well, I have seen this earlier but I didn't understand this approach. It was little bit confusing. Can you plaese explain in detail because I'm new to the VS workflows.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Hitchs
