Creating Site Columns from List Columns (SP2010)

Oct 31, 2013 at 4:00 PM
We are going down the road of reuseable workflows, and most our users create List Columns instead of Site Columns. We would like to use SPServices to identify the lists columns and create corresponding Site Columns.

Does this sound reasonable?

I suppose so. You can use GetColumns to get info about all of the Site Columns and then GetList to see how each list is built. I think that would at least let you see where there are list columns with the same name as a Site Column so that you could figure out what to do with them.
