Someone in my company 'removed' (I dont know how) all workflows that appears on /_layouts/wrkmng.aspx
I'm trying to figure out how to re-add all the OOTB workflows to my site collection again.
Is that possible?

I am having a simple OOTB approval worflow associated to the simple document library. Task is created when an document is uploaded to the library. When I click the task item in task list, I see a blank field "Requested By" right below the
"Status" column and I am unable to understand from where this field is coming and how to populate this field. Any help would be great...
My problem is simple, although solution can be complex. If you know, when you start OOTB approval workflow, it creates a task item in Tasks list. An approver can click the task and open the page where he can approve/reject, also, where he can leave his comments in the "Type comments to include with your response:" textbox. These comments are included in the email which is sent after approval/rejection. Well, I looked at the columns in the Tasks list (Workflow Tasks list too) and I couldn't find any column that specifically stores these comments. I'm sure they are stored somewhere, they just can't be gone with an email.
My question is where are the comments and how to get and display them as a column in the Tasks list. I hope there is a UI way to do this. But if not, I'm ready to develop something like event handler for that.
I have created a publishing site with workflow and it has already attached Page Approval workflow to my pages library. Now OOTB all the submission are direclty sent to OOTB Approvers group , but I have created my own approvers group "ABC Approvers" with
some extra permissions . I want all my submission to be sent to this(as well). I know how to do this manually but I have 50 subsites in my sitecollection which in future are going to grow in numbers.
Is there a way that I can change or add the group using object model or via powershell script. Please help.
The .NET Framework 4 makes it easier than ever to implement WCF services using WF. We'll demonstrate just how easy it is by modeling a long-running, durable and instrumented workflow based on a real-world business case without having to write any code.

This month's column describes how to use WCF for communication between a workflow and a host application in Windows Workflow Foundation 3. This knowledge should help developers with their efforts using WF3 and prepare them for WF4, where WCF is the only abstraction over queues (referred to as "bookmarks" in WF4) that ships with the framework.
Design patterns provide a common, repeatable approach to solving software development tasks, and many different patterns can describe how to accomplish a certain goal in code. When developers begin working with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), they often ask about how to accomplish common tasks with the technology. This month's column discusses several design patterns used in WF.
