Viewers should be able to see the status of the Work Flow which is started.  Is this occuring in all site collections or just a specific site collection or Work Space?


Can a workflow be setup with an agenda? There's no workflow as I don't know how to set one up yet. I can only state that this is occurring in my site. I don't know about others within our company. I'm pretty much the only one developing anything on Sharepoint.
ok try creating an approval workflow.  Browse to your Agenda List and select Settings > List Settings.  Under Permissions and Management select Workflow Settings.  Under workflows click "Add a workflow" Select the workflow template you desire , Name your workflow "i.e. Agenda Approval", On start option select "start this workflow when a new item is created or what ever your preference is and select Next.  Here you set up your approvers due dates etc.  Choose your workflow settings and select Ok.  Once you create a new list item you will notice a new column reflecting the name of your workflow.  Now your viewers can see the status of their Agenda.


I did see the approval workflow you mention. But I want to take a look at this template first:

But I'm having issues setting it up. It calls for command line entries and I was not getting anywhere. So I've asked for the IT dept to help me set up.

All other templates:

Any experience with this or other Sharepoint templates? Should I put forth the effort to try and start with this? Other feedback I have received is YES.
