Remove the Content Type drop down in SharePoint 2013 Workflow Task list


So, Here is my second post on SharePoint 2013 workflow.

Problem Background

After creating a workflow task through custom content type, there is a dropdown showing the content types which were inherited from workflow tasks content type as in the screenshot below. I need to hide the drop down.


Solution 01

  1. Open the the Workflow Task list in browser
  2. Go to list settings and click on Advanced Settings
  3. There under “Content Types”, you have “Allow management of content types?” as radio buttons
  4. Select “No” option.


Solution 02

  1. Open the the Workflow Task list through SharePoint Designer 2013.
  2. Under setting panel there is a check box for “Allow management of content types”. Un tick that check box and save.



Now the user cannot see the dropdown for selecting content type.
