Workflow Information in SharePoint 2013


The workflow information refers to basic data like name and related description of workflow. Few of these basics vary according to the workflow type. You need to simply click the name/description in order to edit them.


Name :-

Descriptive naming of workflow is crucial not only for the workflow creator, but the workflow initiator as well. The name of workflow should give you a swift indication of what exactly the workflow does as well as what it is associated to.


Description :-

When workflows are initiated manually, this specific description gets displayed to end users besides the workflow name. In this, you need to describe to users why they should run this workflow.


Type :-

This is the type of workflow like –

  • List workflow
  • Site workflow
  • Reusable workflow


 Associated List :-

 List workflow displays name of the related list.


Platform Type :-

This indicates if the workflow runs on SharePoint 2010 or SharePoint 2013 workflow engine.


Content Types :-

It’s only the reusable workflow that displays the content type name it is associated with.
