Microsoft 365 Assessment tool for SharePoint 2013 workflows available now!

SharePoint 2013 Workflows platform was introduced 10 years ago. Since the release of SharePoint workflows, Microsoft has evolved workflow orchestration to not only encompass SharePoint, but all the productivity services you use within Microsoft 365 and extend to 3rd parties. Power Automate is the Microsoft solution for workflow orchestration. It connects to all Microsoft 365 services and over 220 other services to let an enterprise build custom workflows. There are also many 3rd party solutions that can directly orchestrate SharePoint data via SharePoint’s open API platform.

SharePoint 2010 Workflows was retired as of November 1st, 2020 with the notice that we would also retire SharePoint Workflow 2013 in the future. Although we currently do not have a timeline to announce SharePoint 2013 Workflow retirement, it is strongly recommended to move 2013 workflows to the Power Automate platform or some other modern workflow orchestration solution.
