Microsoft has announced that support SharePoint 2013 workflow will be ending.
On April 2, 2024, SharePoint 2013 workflow will be turned off for any new Microsoft 365 customer. Then on April 2, 2026, SharePoint 2013 workflow will be removed from existing tenants and fully retired.
Microsoft have said that they recommend anyone using SharePoint 2013 workflows to migrate to Power Automate or other 3rd party orchestration tools. There will be no option to extend SharePoint 2013 workflow beyond April 2, 2026.
If you’re unsure if your organisation is currently using SharePoint 2013 workflows or want to begin the process of migrating to Power Automate, Microsoft recommend customers run the Microsoft Assessment tool to scan their tenants for usage of SharePoint 2013 workflows. This is something Adepteq can help you with.
The Power BI Workflow Report which is generated by the scanner tool allows you to identify all SharePoint 2013 workflows in the tenant, evaluate the recency and volume of usage of SharePoint 2013 workflows, give a upgradability score which will indicate if the detected actions in SharePoint 2013 workflows can be upgraded to flow with Microsoft Power Automate and identify lists, libraries and content types that use SharePoint 2013 workflows.
Microsoft have said they will continue to share updates on this topic through their support articles.
