I have a SP 2013 list with a list-based workflow. Next release, I create a new list with the same content type. I want to re-use the list-based workflow but must implement a work-around to do this. I want to simply copy the stages in the first workflow into a new workflow and then associate the new workflow to the new list. It seems to work. Do you know of any issues doing this?
I cannot work with a reusable workflow because that does not recognize the content type fields and in 2013 you cannot successfully base a workflow on a content type.
