Can't create custom workflow in office 365 sharepoint


  • I am running office 365 and I am trying to create a custom workflow for my site.  The option of creating workflow with sharepoint designer is greyed out.  I also downloaded the sharepoint designer 2013 but it can't access my sharepoint site.  Need some help.  Thanks.

  • I'm assuming you can open the site with SharePoint Designer; but, that is where you see the SharePoint Designer option greyed out.

    Make sure you account has design (or higher) rights in your Office 365 SharePoint.

    After you have design or higher, open the site in SharePoint designer, then find the list or library you want to run the workflow on and create a new workflow by clicking on the new link in the workflow section of the page.
