How to create a new workflow task list

Jump to solution

Workflow settings has a setting to allow you to chose a different workflow task list, but how do you create a new workflow task list?  I have a site which contains multiple lists with workflows being fired constantly with multiple tasks assigned for each.  As such the default workflow task list is very large and impacting upon performance.  I would like to create a separate workflow task list for each list (or even workflow) in the same way I have assigned each to a separate workflow history list but I have no idea who to create a new list which mirrors the standard set up.

Any ideas?

Thanks Marian. I don't appear to have the option to create one. Do you know where that is restricted from?

I'm not sure whether site admin permission level is sufficient, you need to have access to a specific default template.

I do not know where the template is stored, but I would say somewhere in sharepoint's catalog.

I do not know whether there is other, more straightforward, way how to create a workflow task list, but you can as well do it with this little trick:

- navigate to the site content > add an app

- choose to add whatever new application

- click advanced option on the dialog that asks you for name of new application. you should be navigated to new page

- change in the page address ListTemplate to 107 and FeatureId to respective one acc. this table List of feature ID, listTemplate - Vinit`s SharePoint Space - Site Home - TechNet Blogs​. after you press enter you should be navigated to a page that allows you to create new task list
