In SharePoint Designer 2010, I was attempting to create an approval task for an item. When I tried to added the action to the workflow, I received the following error.
Cannot insert this action. To use task process actions, the Office SharePoint Server Standard Site features must be enabled for this site by an administrator.
At the site and site collection I made sure SharePoint Server Standard Site features was enabled. Taking it one step further, I also enabled SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features. Still the workflow wasn’t working correctly. Navigated back to the site collection features and activated the Workflows feature. Refreshed SharePoint Designer and all of the actions worked.
You installed SharePoint, then your power users enabled the content organizer feature all over your farm. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but if it’s not being used, turn it off! Less load on the farm, the better off you will be.
You will find plenty of examples on the web about cleaning up this mess, but I took a slightly different approach. Before disabling the feature and deleting the library, I first checked to make sure the library was empty and no content org rules had been created.
$web = Get-SPWeb "http://webapp.sharepointed.com"
$feature = Get-SPFeature "7ad5272a-2694-4349-953e-ea5ef290e97c"
$corList = $web.lists["Content Organizer Rules"]
$dolList = $web.lists["Drop Off Library"]
#check for Cont Org Rules and items in Drop Off Library
if(($corList.ItemCount -eq 0) -and ($dolList.ItemCount -eq 0))
#disable the feature
Disable-SPFeature -Identity "7ad5272a-2694-4349-953e-ea5ef290e97c" -Url $_.URL -Confirm:$false
#remove the Drop Off Library
$dolList.AllowDeletion = $true
