Recently, I was about to create a new workflow on a brand new environment. Hence, the default Site Collection Features alone were added.

When I tried to add a Workflow, I could not find many templates in that site collection.


Then by activating the Following Site Collection features, I was able to see the missing templates.

1. Publishing Approval Workflow




2. Workflows Feature




After activating these two features, I was able to see almost all the templates.

I have not mentioned about the SharePoint 2007 Workflows Feature as most of the sites were migrated into at least 2010.

Happy Coding,

Sathish Nadarajan.
