I'm creating a simple workflow in Visual Studio:
I can deploy it, and it works. I then try to open it with SharePoint designer: However, the steps/activities/stages are missing. How come I'm not seeing the sequence I've created in Visual Studio in the designer? Shouldn't I see at least an IF statement?
Additionally, it does not work when I try it vice versa. Steps I took:
- Created a simple workflow in sharepoint designer.
- Opened Visual Studio and attempted to "Import a SharePoint 2013 project" because somehow, you can only import SharePoint 2010 reusable workflows, not SharePoint 2013 reusable workflows.
- Visual Studio fails to open it.
I can't even find anything relevant on Google. This seems like a huge omission to me. Tutorials such as this one on MSDN explain how to import a SharePoint 2010 workflow into Visual Studio 2012. Not a Sharepoint 2013 into Visual Studio 2012. Can anyone explain what's going on?
