What Is Custom Workflow In SharePoint?

SharePoint workflows are designed and proposed to automate business processes and reduce manual operations.

Any small, medium or large organization needs Collaboration and Sharing. SharePoint so far is the leading and best platform across the globe and electing it for your business is also the right choice.

SharePoint workflows are a structured collaboration of activities, which can be integrated into several steps. Each activity represents a functional component of a display work process.

SharePoint Designer is a perfect and effective tool to customize your sites and create significant workflows to make the working process more simple and efficient. It is a free tool offered by Microsoft itself that gives organizations the opportunity to create complex workflows that include parallel and multi-stage serial approvals across the entire business.

It contains several SharePoint Workflow templates using which creating the approval one is easy, quick and effective. But if you need to create your own workflow, you may do this using the steps of this guide.

Below are the 5 Types of SharePoint Workflows which can be used in different Business Scenarios.

  • Signature workflow
  • Feedback workflow
  • Approval workflow
  • Publishing approval
  • Three-state workflow


  • You must have permission to add SharePoint Workflows to a DocumentList or Document Library.
  • SharePoint Workflows should be turned On in the Site collection features. Browse to Site Settings > Site collection features (under “Site Collection Administration” section) and find “Workflows” on the list bottom. Then click “Activate”.
