Create a SharePoint team site, find that there is no workflow history list. lists/workflow history. any idea?
AFAIK, that list is created only when you use "publishing with workflow" site template because this template creates pages library and associates an approval workflow with the library.
In other words, that list is created only when the site definition/template associates a workflow with workflow enabled objects like lists and libraries. If the site definition does not associate a workflow as part of its definition, the workflow history list will not be created and that is an expected behavior.
