SharePoint 2010 Work Flow Engine RetirementSileo Admin2020-10-30T17:06:48-07:00
Time Has Run Out.
On November 1st, Microsoft PHASED OUT SharePoint 2010 Workflows on SharePoint Online. If you’re on SharePoint Online and are using workflows, you may have noticed they stopped working without any forewarning.
If you’re on SharePoint Online, or have migrated from SharePoint 2010/2013 to SharePoint Online and have workflows, you were 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 stopped running
Any custom workflows that may have been built using SharePoint designer were terminated as well
Why this happened.
Microsoft retired 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
How can this be fixed?
If you are not using Power Automate Flows, then you need to migrate over to Power Automate Flows immediately
There are some tools out there to help with the migration, but they can be burdensome and aren’t 100% effective
Troubleshooting this process can be difficult. But we are here to help! Contact The Bayen Group at 424-271-9384 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org for a FREE assessment to determine the best course of action for the migration of legacy workflows.
