Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2009-10-09

When a Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 workflow is no longer needed, you can delete it. Deleting a SharePoint Designer workflow permanently deletes the workflow source files from the site and makes the workflow unavailable to users on the site. The deleted workflow is automatically removed from the list or library with which it was associated when it was created.

Use the following steps to delete a SharePoint Designer workflow.

Deleting a SharePoint Designer workflow also deletes the history data for that workflow.
