SharePoint Workflow End Of Life
Microsoft announced that all SharePoint workflows running SharePoint Online have officially reached their end of life. If you are running workflow automation in SharePoint Online, then your business will be impacted. Microsoft provides two versions of workflows in SharePoint, version 2010 and version 2013. Depending on which version of SharePoint workflows you are using will dictate your next steps.
SharePoint 2010 workflows are retired
SharePoint 2010 workflows are officially retired. Microsoft will start to remove the ability to run or create SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants effective November 1st 2010. If you are running these workflows in your organization, then you can expect them to stop working before the end of the year.
SharePoint 2013 workflows are deprecated
SharePoint 2013 workflows are deprecated, but will remain supported. Microsoft will turn off the SharePoint 2013 workflow engine starting effective November 1st 2010, in an attempt to deter you from creating any workflows in SharePoint 2013.
Microsoft Power Automate replaces SharePoint workflows
Not to worry, Microsoft has a solution to replace your SharePoint workflows. Microsoft has built a workflow orchestration platform called Power Automate, which connects all Microsoft 365 services together. Power Automate provide hundreds of connectors to external services, allowing your workflow to support code-less integrations with just about any cloud service.
