Avoid “All” and “Item” Content Types


To prevent lengthy content type evaluation when saving or publishing reusable workflow templates, avoid selecting “All” or “Item” for the content type. Instead, create a content type based on Item and then select the created content type when defining the reusable workflow template.


For instructions on creating content types, refer to the SharePoint documentation.
