What SharePoint development tool works best to create custom workflows?
A candidate that jumps right to SharePoint Designer as an answer may not be well-versed on building complex workflows. The more thoughtful candidate will include a reference to Visual Studio, which allows the workflow to be installed at multiple locations and can include more than 20 steps in the workflow process. Additionally, only Visual Studio allows for workflow to move back and forth between status changes. Using SharePoint Designer, work only moves forward through states, never backward. This can be problematic when you need to send something backward in the process. The SharePoint 2010 Development Tutorial covers the new tools offered through Visual Studio, along with many other additions to the 2010 software product.
