I have created a modern Site in SharePoint Online tenant. Now I want to run the an approval workflow over my document library. When I open the site using SharePoint Designer I don't see any Default workflows which is provided by SharePoint.

Please guide me on this.

Thanks, Kailash


If you want to use default approval workflow, you do not need to use SharePoint Designer. They are built in workflows and cannot be modified. You can follow this to add a built-in approval workflow:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72_i9wcZZd4

If you use SharePoint Designer, you can create a custom approval workflow. Here is an example:https://blog.virtosoftware.com/how-to-create-sharepoint-designer-2013-workflow/

And of course you can search google with keyword like "SharePoint designer approval workflow step by step" for more reference.

  • I reactivated the "Workflow" SC feature, still don't see the OOTB- Approval Workflow. I am only able to see the "Disposition Approval" and "Three-State" workflow. Nothing else is displaying. FYI: The site is a modern site. Please help me on this. Thanks – Kailash Sahoo Jul 13 at 10:43
