Hi experts!

I would like to know, if it is possible to switch off "workflows" in the drop-down context menu of a list item and how to do it. The user group for this list has a customized permissions profile, but I could not find the right checkbox. So maybe there is a different way / place to deactivate it.

Thank you very much in advance for helping!

Default even a group having contributor access has the workflow menuitem visible.
You can remove the permission of the group from  contributor to read access to remove the workflow option.
go to sitename > Documents/listname > Settings > Permissions > Edit Permissions   of the respective group and then change the permission.

I've created a permissions group based off Contributors and removed the ability to delete but want the user to add and edit items but don't want users to view workflows through the pull down list.  Is that possible and if so, how?
