SharePoint 2010 workflow retirement


Microsoft have recently announced the retirement of SharePoint 2010, a piece of technology which many people will have grown to love and rely on. Read the announcement below:

“As part of the evolution of the Microsoft 365 service, we periodically evaluate the capabilities of the service to make sure that we’re delivering the utmost value to customers. After careful consideration, we concluded that for SharePoint 2010 workflows, Microsoft 365 customers would be better served by modern workflow solutions.

Therefore, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be retired starting August 1, 2020. This applies to all environments, including Government Community Cloud (GCC) High and Department of Defense. If you’re using SharePoint 2010 workflows, we recommend migrating to Power Automate or other supported solutions. 

After August 1, 2020, new Microsoft 365 customers can use SharePoint 2013 workflows or Power Automate. However, SharePoint 2013 workflows will follow a similar retirement path in the future, so it’s highly recommended to use Power Automate or other supported solutions. You won’t lose any content during the transition. However, all migration of workflows is a manual process.”
