Workflow administration (SharePoint Server 2010)
Published: May 12, 2010
This section explains how to perform common workflow administration tasks.
In this section:
You can modify the configuration settings for existing workflow associations, cancel running workflows, remove workflow associations, and uninstall or delete workflows from a site.
While workflows run, you can check statuses of workflows, view reports about workflows, and diagnose error conditions that are associated with workflows.
Workflow settings that you configure globally apply to all sites in a Web application. You can enable deployment of user-defined Microsoft SharePoint Designer workflows, allow non-authenticated users to participate in workflows, and disable the automatic cleanup of workflow history that is older than 60 days.
When you use Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 to create workflows, you can save them as workflow templates (.wsp files). The .wsp file can then be used to deploy the workflow on multiple sites and site collections. A video accompanies procedures in this article to illustrate how to use the user interface to deploy a workflow as a WSP file.
This video demonstrates the interaction among SharePoint Designer 2010, InfoPath Forms Services in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, and workflows.
This video illustrates how you can create a reusable workflow, attach it to a content type, and then use that content type in a library.
This video illustrates how to use SharePoint Designer 2010 to create a site workflow, which is a type of workflow that is attached to a site itself. In addition, you will also see how to use InfoPath Forms Services to modify the user interface form that this workflow creates.
