  1. True or False. You can create a custom workflow in SharePoint Designer for use across all sites in a site collection.

False. When you use SharePoint Designer to create a custom workflow, you can only associate it with a single list or library, and you cannot add it to any central gallery or directory. To add a workflow to the central gallery, you must develop it using custom code and the .NET framework.
