Duplicate OOTB workflows on Documents

  Asked By: Imdrajit    Date: Aug 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 830

For some reason I have duplicate Approval and Collect Feedback
workflows showing when I add a document to my document library and
select Workflows for this document. I tried using each of the
workflows and none of them work.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the duplicate workflows and get the
other set working again?

There are default Approval and Collect Feedback workflows  instantiated into the
system of most document  libraries. If you added your own copies that would lead
to the duplicates. If you go to the workflow settings of the list you should be
able to remove the ones you added. The ones added by the system can't be
removed to the best of my knowledge.

I haven't added any additional workflows  to the site. I even tried
creating a new document  library and when I try to create a new
workflow using the default Collect Feedback workflow and assign it to
a document I get an error: "The workflow failed to start due to an
internal error"
