Accessing hidden workflow history list with Content Query Web Part or Data View Web Part? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to use the Content Query Web Part or Data View Web Part to poll the workflow history list (preferably across the whole site collection) and roughly reconstruct the contents of the workflows that were executed since the creation of our site collection?

    I'm a site collection admin but unfortunately I have no access to the back end servers whatsoever. I am stuck with a 60-day auto cleanup.

    My ultimate goal would be to use the workflow history list and auto-magically create a workflow dashboard which would show users their completed and in-progress workflows (not just tasks). I have my doubts that this can be done without 3rd party software or access to the back end, but I wanted to see what I can find out.

    FYI this is SP 2007.
