Hi and thanks for reading. I have an imported list at the top site level, "Staff Info". I'm having trouble creating a reusable workflow that I can use in subsites, (Document Center & Team sites) that can reference the list as a data src. It's not an option when I look for DataSource at the library level. I'd like to be able to use the workflow to show the fields from the list, using the Author as the 'foreign key'. I can get it to work locally, ... by creating a local staff info list, and site WF, but this isn't going to work as I can't be updateing multiple instance of the list when it gets updated. Is it possible to have a Data Source/list that I can see at lower levels in the site collection?
I get this msg. Cannot publish global workflow. Before a workflow can be globally reused you must remove any look ups to the list in the current items.
Please advice me how I can have one list, and a reusable wf that looks to that list for all libraries in my site collection. Thanks for any help.
