There’s a looming problem on the horizon that must be addressed by Nov 1st and the clock is ticking
If you’re on SharePoint Online and are using workflows, they will stop working without any forewarning
Industry has done a poor job communicating and explaining this
How do you know if you’ll be affected?
If you’re on SharePoint Online, or have migrated from SharePoint 2010/2013 to SharePoint Online and have workflows, you will be affected
If you’re using:
Any out of the box list template work flows such as three state workflow or disposition work flow those are likely using 2010 Workflow Engine and will cease to run
Any custom workflows that may have been built using SharePoint designer will be terminated as well
Have workflows but are unsure? Double-check
However, if you’re on SharePoint on Premise, you’re safe and won’t be affected
Why is this happening?
Microsoft is retiring a very old product called the SharePoint 2010 Workflow Engine
They deprecate old features throughout the year and often, they aren’t well publicized and sometimes they can greatly affect us
They have a new and improved product within the Microsoft 365 platform called Power Automate Flows
What comes next?
If you are using Power Automate Flows, then you’re safe come Nov 1st
If unsure or you have workflows in place, you’ve got to migrate them to Power Automate Flows by Nov 1st to avoid any disruption in your workflows executing
You’ll need to quickly determine how this will affect your business
There are some tools out there, but they can be burdensome and aren’t 100% effective
You’ve got to plan to move to Power Automate Flows now
