How to create a site workflow from a "reusable template"

Version 3.0.7.0  I have been unable to find any documentation or reference on creating a Site Workflow from a Reusable Workflow Template.  When I click "Create New Site Workflow" I do not see an option anywhere in the GUI for choosing a Template as the basis for the new workflow.  I published the Resuable Template at the root of the Site Collection.  I tried Export/Import but that failed on Import because it correctly said it wasn't a Site Template.  I know it's probably user error but I would appreciate your help.  Thanks.

Re: How to create a site workflow from a "reusable template"

Hi Chuck,

 

 

I don't think there is an option to use the reusable workflow as a site workflow because reusable  workflow is always associated with a content type. Hence it can be reused in a list/library which inherits this content type.

 

 

Also, as an workaround you can try doing following:

 

1. Add an action set to the reusable workflow and move all your actions inside this actions set. Save the action set a snippet.

 

2. Now click "Create New Site Workflow" and then add your snippet to it.

 

You can give try on this workaround.

 

Thanks,

Nidish

Re: How to create a site workflow from a "reusable template"

Thank you for your response.  My template is associated with a content type, and your answer led me to look in "Library/Workflow Settings" where I found "Create a Workfow in Nintex Workflow".  Unfortunately when I choose that option, I get a dialog titled "Select a Workflow Template" with the "Sorry, something went wrong" error.  I Looks like the snippet workaround may be a better option.

I am trying this again but when I try to save the snippet I get NintexError.jpg

Please advise.  Thanks.
