    Howdy all,

    Sorry if this is a duplicate post, but I was not able to find an answer to this anywhere. 

    Is there any way to enable the workflow system to work with the out of the box list module? If not, I assume it would be easy enough to extend?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Jim Barntish,

    Unfortunately there is no way to enable the workflow for the lists module, because the architecture of the List module does not allow it. This module haven't much evolved since Sitefinity 3.0, and this is preventing you to extend it in an easier way.
    The only suggestions we could give you are either to wait for Sitefinity 4.0, or use another module for this purpose - for example Generic Content with additional provider plus a custom control which lists the items in a similar way to the ListDisplay control.

    Kind regards,
