After fixing the intranet site that was deleted, I am re-establishing some pages that were lost. I have a site template that I created and when I try to use it on the top level site, I receive the following error message {} and I found what this message meant by going to this link. I went to Site Actions --> Site Settings --> Site Collection Administration --> Site Collection Features, but do not see 'SignaturesWorkflow' to activate it.

Also, if I activate the template in the top level Galleries --> Solutions, is it necessary for me to also activate it in the subsites of the top level site as well? Or if I only need it for the subsites, should I ONLY activate the template in the solutions gallary for that specific subsite?

Here is a screen shot of the error message.

Error Message for Site Collection Feature, SignaturesWorkflow

The error message I am receiving is:

The site template requires that the Feature {6c09612b-46af-4b2f-8dfc-59185c962a29} be activated in the site collection.

I have a link that I go to to find out what the GUIDs are and this specific GUID is for 'SignaturesWorkflow' the link for this site is in the message above. Where do I go to activate the SignaturesWorkflow?

I have already gone to Site Collection Features @ the top-level-site, but it does not appear in here. So where can I find it to activate it?

Ok, so I was searching on how to fix this error and came accross the following link. I hope this helps those of you who may be experiencing the same thing I am. Now I activated the 2007 workflow in the site collection and have another GUID error message. I went to the site that I mentioned in the first post and it does not contain the information for the GUID.

'The site template requires that the Feature {e8389ec7-70fd-4179-a1c4-6fcb4342d7a0} be activated in the site collection'.

We can close this one and I guess, if I can't find the resolution, I will have to ask.


Try this in SharePoint Powershell:

Enable-SPFeature "6c09612b-46af-4b2f-8dfc-59185c962a29" -URL "http(s)://YourStieCollectionURL"

(because feature scope is "site")

  1. Go to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site collection features (under ‘Site Collection Administration’ section).
  2. Activate Publishing Approval Workflow, Workflows and SharePoint 2007 Workflows in sequence.
  3. Now when you go to list or library tab -> workflow settings -> Add a workflow, by default, Disposition Approval Workflow and Three-state workflow will be available. When above 2 steps are performed Collect Signature and Collect Feedback workflows will be available.
