  • I am new for workflows in CRM 2011.

    I have created a custom workflow, and registered it using plugin registration tool.

    I want to register a step which can be fried for all entities.....

  • Hi Prashanth,

    Workflow steps can not be registered through Plugin registration Tool. You will have to register the Workflow step through CRM UI. It means you will have create Workflow and register your Workflow activity using below steps.

    -  In the Navigation Pane, click Settings. Under Process Center, click Processes.

    -  In the process pane, create or open an existing process.

    - For the process, click Add Step. Your custom workflow activity name will appear in the drop-down list.

    One more thing the Workflow can not be registered to fire on All entities. You will have to manually create workflow through UI for each entity. instead you can create Asynchronous Plugin to achieve your requirement that will fire on all entities.

    Hope this helps!
