  • The workflow is likely not associated with the list. You can confirm what workflows are associated with a list by going to the list in your browser, selecting 'List' from the ribbon followed by 'Workflow Settings' – Dovahkiin Oct 8 '14 at 15:35
  • @Dovahkiin thanks for advice but when I'm selecting Workflow Settings in browser then I'm selecting a workflow this list but I'm getting this message "This workflow cannot be customized from the browser. Use a sharepoint-compatible workflow editing tool, such as Microsoft Sharepoint Designer, to edit this workflow." I'm not want to edit this workflows. I want to associated with the list. How can I do this from browser? – zengel Oct 9 '14 at 5:36
  • In Workflow settings there is a link to Add a workflow imgur.com/eucXHCE. If you don't see your workflow there it probably wasn't created successfully. Here is a pretty good tutorial on workflows codeproject.com/Tips/419037/… – Dovahkiin Oct 9 '14 at 14:00
  • @Dovahkiin I'm thinking I created workflows succesfully and when I'm selecting Workflow settings I see my workflows this list. But when I want to selecting those workflows, I got above warning, because I created those workflows via Sharepoint Designer. And I tried Add Workflow as your advice but it didn't associate my custom list. – zengel Oct 10 '14 at 5:13
