Project Server 2013 Work Flow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We planed to have as simple workflow for project, which will go through initiation, planning , execution and monitoring and closure. Is there any easy way to configure this or we need to develop the workflow using visual studio.


    Thanks in advance, taj

  • Indeed without the tools mentionned above, no workflow can be created. There is an out of the box demand management workflow available by default that is not intended to be used in production, but more for testing purpose.

    Hope fhis helps.

  • Hi Taj,

    With PS2013, it is now possible to build workflow using SharePoint Designer that requires less/no code than with Visual Studio with PS2010.

    See some interesting links below to start over:

  • Hi All,

    Thanks for your responses. Is there is any default workflow in Project Server. 

    So with out Visual Studio, SharePoint Designer , third party tools, simple workflow can not be created.


    Thanks in advance, taj
