    Hi,

    1-      I want to “save as a template” of my sharepoint list and move it to another sharepoint site. But this list have workflow in sharepoint designer, how I can have this workflow(related to list) in destination site?


     (excuse me, i ask my three problem because i think they are related with each other) I'm very appriciated if anyone can help me.

     

    Moderator Note: Questions 2 and 3 removed. They are very different to Q1 and need a new thread. (At least one)

    Moderator Note 2: Use normal sized fonts in future. I have reduced this one in size. It should not be necessary.

  • Hi luckstar,

    SharePoint Designer Workflows are associated with one list only. In fact, if you take a look to the Workflow source files, all references to the list uses the GUID. So, I'm afraid you'll have to create a new Workflow for the new list instance.

    If you convert SPD workflow to VS workflow then you can use it in many places.

    Hope this could help

  • Questions 2 and 3 are not related to q1. Post them as a new thread.

    (Here is what they were: When I backup from site collection with stsadm command, how I can backup and restore from SPD workflows associated with this site collection?    When I backup from site collection with central administration environment, how I can backup and restore from SPD workflows associated with this site collection?)

  • Hi,

    YES there is no way atleast in MOSS 2007. I don't know any third party tool. You can googling it if there is any.
