Here I will explain Some New Features in SharePoint Designer 2010
It's a tool for Rapid development for SharePoint Applications using SharePoint
designer. It's easy to use. If you want to customize SharePoint 2010 you can
create a rapidly create a SharePoint Solution in response to business needs.
Here will see some of new features in SharePoint Designer 2010.
1. Reusable Work flow
This new feature allows you to create a workflow that can be applied to as
many lists or libraries on the site as you needThe workflow can then only be
activated only on lists or libraries containing that content type, which
eliminates the need to build a check content type action into the workflow
2. SharePoint Designer ribbon allows easy access to workflow building blocks
The SharePoint Designer ribbon is your one-stop-shop for all the tools and parts
you need to create your workflows
3. Impersonation Step
This step allows the workflow to perform all actions within that step with the
permissions of the author of the workflow, not the person who initiates the
workflow. This means that the workflow can perform actions the user would
otherwise be restricted from doing on the site â€“ for example copying an item or
document to another library to which the user has only visitor access.
4. Two-way import/export between SharePoint Designer and Microsoft Visio
It allows SharePoint workflows to be built visually using tools in Visio 2010
and exported directly into SharePoint Designer. Using the Microsoft SharePoint
Workflow template in Visio (found in the "Flowcharts" template section), you
will get access to all the actions and conditions available within SharePoint
