I'm studying up on adding an OOB Workflow for a list. When I am at the Add a Workflow form, there is a drop down element called "Select a Task List:" with two choices: "Workflow Tasks" and "Tasks (New)". What is the difference between the two? The description really isn't self-explanatory.

enter image description here


These are just task lists. Each workflow can log its user tasks to a different task list. Selecting "Tasks (new)" will create a new task list named "yourWorkflowName Tasks". The default task list for workflows is "Workflow Tasks".

  • @mike-smith-mct-mvp, thanks. I see there is a list called "Workflow Tasks". I'll try the Task (new) just to test it out. Again, many thanks.
