Deleting a Globally Reusable Workflow that was Created by Copy and Paste

Here’s a good thing NOT to do.

  • Open SPD 2010 at the site collection level and go into the workflow assets.
  • Make a copy of the Publishing Approval workflow using copy/paste.
  • Decide that you really didn’t want to do it that way and delete your copy of the workflow.
  • Amazingly, all the Publishing Approval workflows are deleted.
  • Close SPD, thinking that this must be a user interface glitch.
  • Open SPD and verify that the workflows have indeed been deleted.
  • Start working on a way to get the Publishing Approval workflow back.
  • If you don’t have a lot of customized WFs yet, deactivate and reactivate the Publishing Approval workflow.
  • Use "Copy and Modify" in the future.
