I am a bit new to SharePoint Designer and am having some trouble with custom workflows. I am tasked with migrating some SharePoint 2010 lists to a new SharePoint 2013 site. Due to complex workflows, these are being done manually.

I have created the list in the 2013 site and created a 2010 workflow for the list by clicking on "New..." in the Workflow section of SPD 2013. I rebuilt the new workflow to match the old one. However, the workflow is not showing up under Workflows:

In the actual workflow though, it says that the associated list is correct:

Perhaps a separate issue, but I noticed this issue while trying to add the ManualDispo_Req column (old 2010 list shown below):

What is this column and how do I add it? It currently doesn't show up as an option in the Modify View, but I assume this is because the workflow isn't associated yet.

Any information would be great. Thanks.

You will need to publish the workflow. When you will open workflow in sharepoint designer, you will find the publish option in Ribbon in workflow settings

  • So simple! Thanks. The tutorials I was looking at left that part out...

  • Now what if I made these flows using ms edge? They aren't even in this registry for me...

  • I'm working on SharePoint 2013 workflow, even after publishing the workflow it is not visible/associated with the list. Oct 30, 2018 at 8:06
