SharePoint 2010 workflows

For those of you who are on Microsoft 365, but are still running SharePoint 2010 workflows, it’s important to know that they will be retired completely:

  • Starting August 1st, 2020, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be turned off for newly created tenants.
  • Starting November 1st, 2020, Microsoft will begin to remove the ability to run or create SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants.

The recommendation is to switch to Power Automate as soon as possible.
