CHAPTER 5: Creating Declarative Workflows > Using Workflow Visualization

Using Workflow Visualization

As mentioned, one of the advantages to using Visio to design the workflow is that you can see a visual representation of the workflow process from SharePoint. I'll now demonstrate how to enable that feature.

Enabling the Visualization Option

From the Workflow properties page, select the “Set workflow visualization on status page” check box, as shown in Figure 5-93.

Figure 5-93. Enabling workflow visualization

After making this change, make sure you re-publish the workflow by clicking the Publish button in the ribbon. Create a new request and then approve it once the approval task has been generated.

images Note Workflow supports multiple versions. All of the existing requests were started using the initial workflow version that didn't include the visualization. New requests will use the current workflow version which does includes it. You should keep in mind that if you modify a workflow, the existing instances are not affected.
