Error "Cannot access the Workflow gallery from list view webparts" Accessing Manage Workflows

Issue

When trying to access the "Manage Workflows" page from the "Workflow Settings" menu in the ribbon the following error might occur:

Cannot access the Workflow gallery from list view webparts.

Resolution

Access the page from a full library view page.

Error Code

Cannot access the Workflow gallery from list view webparts.

Additional Information

The error indicates that the Workflow Designer and Manage Workflows pages are being accessed from a list view webpart, possibly directly from a teamsite homepage. Nintex Workflow components can only be accessed from a full library view page.

The Nintex .aspx pages, including the Workflow Designer, rely on a List Id being passed to the page by SharePoint. This is not available from a list view webpart.
