SharePoint 2010 out of box workflows
17-Feb-2013 4:56 AM
In this post we will discuss about what are different types of out of box workflows in SharePoint 2010.

Disadvantanges of SharePoint Designer workflows?
SharePoint provides six workflows out of the box. They are:
1- Three-state workflow
This workflow has 3 states Active, Ready for Review, and Complete. This is leveraged on issue tracking lists in SharePoint But you can also use in other lists as well as to custom lists.
2- Approval workflow
Approval workflow is one of the most popular workflow in SharePoint 2010. It involves routing a piece of SharePoint content to all designated approvers requesting their approval or denial of the content. The submission process can either be serial, where the order of approvers is predetermined, or parallel, where any approver can approve at any time.
3- Collect Feedback workflow
The Collect Feedback workflow gives submitter the ability to acquire feedback for their peers on the status of the submitted document. This workflow routes the document to the specified team members.
4- Collect Signatures workflow
Collect Signatures workflow, will require each approver to place a digital signature on the document.
5- Disposition Approval workflow
This workflow allows you to manage document expiration and retention. This enables you to decide what will happen to documents when they expire.
6- Translation Management workflow
Use this workflow to help facilitate the manual process of translating office documents from one language to another. This workflow works with two list types: a Translation Management Library and a translators list. A document that needs to be translated is uploaded into the Translation Management Library, and translators in the translators list receive tasks to start translating the source document into their respective languages. When all the translation tasks are completed, the Translation Management workflow is completed.
