Migrate SharePoint workflows to Power Automate

SharePoint 2013 workflows to Microsoft Power Automate
06 Dec 2023

Microsoft announced the end of life for SharePoint workflows, affecting SharePoint Online users using the SharePoint 2013 workflows in their existing process automation. However, SharePoint 2013 workflows will still be supported for on-premises platforms until 2026. Organizations should plan for a smooth transition to Power Automate and evaluate their current SharePoint 2013 workflows to Microsoft Power Automate-based workflows.

A key difference between SharePoint 2013 Workflow and Power Automate Workflow 

SharePoint Workflow is a more limited tool explicitly designed for use in SharePoint. At the same time, Power Automate Workflow is a more powerful and flexible tool that can be used with various applications and services. Choosing the right tool will depend on your specific needs and the scope of your workflow automation project. With Power Automate, you can create various flows, including:

  • Automated flows: It is possible to set up automation for one or multiple tasks initiated when a specific event occurs. This can eliminate the need for manually executing tasks, saving time and effort.
  • Button flows: Power Automate is a cloud-based platform streamlining daily operations and automating tasks, saving time and effort. It integrates with your favorite apps and services for flexibility and convenience. It’s essential for businesses and individuals.
  • Scheduled flows: Assessing your processes can boost productivity and simplify workflows, freeing up time for other tasks.
  • Business process flows: Clear and organized guidelines are essential for helping users achieve their goals. Detailed instructions provide clarity and boost confidence, improving the overall experience.
  • UI flows: Our software automates manual steps on legacy software, increasing efficiency and reducing errors.
