Major update: AnnouncementApplies To: All
This is a reminder that the SharePoint 2010 Workflow retirement will be occurring next week. As communicated in MC217999 (July ’20) and MC222628 (Sept. ’20), with the continued investment in Power Automate as the universal solution to workflows, Microsoft is retiring SharePoint 2010 workflows.
Note: for Microsoft 365 environments where Power Automate is not yet available we will provide additional guidance, in the future, via Message center.
- Major: Retirement
- Starting August 1st, 2020, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be turned off for any newly created tenants.
- Starting November 1st, 2020, Microsoft will remove the ability to run, or create, or execute SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants.
How this will affect your organization:
If your organization still uses SharePoint 2010 workflows, they will no longer function after November 1st, 2020. SharePoint 2013 workflows will remain supported, although turned off by default for new tenants starting November 1st, 2020. We recommend customers to move to Power Automate or other supported solutions.What you need to do to prepare:
You will want to notify your users, workflow developers and site owners. Update your user training and prepare your help desk.
- Use the SharePoint Modernization Scanner tool to scan your tenants for legacy workflow usage.
- Review the guidance for migrating from classic workflows to Power Automate flows.
- Review the Power Automate resources as a solution to legacy workflows.
