Retiring SharePoint 2010 Workflows

From Microsoft Corporation

MC217999, Plan For Change, Published date: Jul 7, 2020

Major update: AnnouncementApplies To: All

Since the release of SharePoint workflows, Microsoft has evolved workflow orchestration to not only encompass SharePoint, but all the productivity services you use with Microsoft 365 and beyond. With the continued investment in Power Automate as the universal solution to workflow, Microsoft is retiring SharePoint 2010 workflows.

Key Points:

  • Major: Retirement
  • Timeline:
    • 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, and or execute SharePoint 2010 workflows from existing tenants.
  • Action: Review and assess impact

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.
