Editing Workflows in SharePoint 2013


In this tutorial, we will understand the options available for editing workflow s  in SharePoint 2013.


Save :-

It allows you to save your changes without actually putting them in production.

Publish :-

It allows you to put your workflow straight into production.

Check for Errors :-

It allows you to check the workflow logic to ensure that it does make sense and will run in the correct way.


Paste, Cut, Copy – You can find this in SharePoint Designer 2013. You can cut, copy, and paste different workflow components in several places within workflow. Right-clicking any of the objects in the workflow provides access to these options.



Advanced Properties :-

Each of the workflow’s condition & action has advanced properties that allow for further configuration. You can select the name of any suitable condition or action, and finally click this button in order to modify the properties.


Move Up & Move Down :-

You can rearrange the workflow pieces by selecting any one and then clicking any of these buttons.


Delete :-

It allows you to delete selected action from workflow.

Besides these options, you also have the option to “Insert” and “Manage” which will be discussed in next tutorial.
