I have created two workflows, list and normal workflow.

I have saved and published both the workflows. But under my workflows in the site I can only see the normal workflow, I am not able to see the list workflow.

Why is it so? Is there any other settings that should be done for list workflow?


Are you looking in the browser under Site Settings >> Workflow Settings? This will only show site workflows. To see your list workflow you'd have to go to the Workflow Settings for the list.

If you're looking in Designer and one is missing, try going to Lists and Libraries, select the list, and see if the workflow shows up under the Workflows section.

  • Make sure you published your workflow, and that if you are trying to start it manually that the tick in the workflow settings is checked to allow "manual start" – Mike Apr 7 '16 at 12:25
  • Yes that tick is checked . but i couldn't see the list workflow in browser – Dah Sra Apr 7 '16 at 13:12
  • @dahsra Go to your list in the browser. In the ribbon, go to List Settings. Click Workflow Settings. Your list workflow will be here. You might have to choose a different content type from the dropdown, depending on which content type you built the workflow for. – Erin L Apr 7 '16 at 13:13
