5 Benefits of Migrating Your Workflow to Power Automate

With the announcement of SharePoint Designer Workflows 2013 being removed off Microsoft 365 tenants by April 2, 2026, and the subsequent decision to disable these workflows for the newly created clients, SPR has been actively assisting clients in preparing alternative solutions. In many cases, this involves migrated workflows to Power Automate. Several expensive third-party workflows, originally built on the SharePoint Designer 2013 workflows framework, are now hastily transitioning to new frameworks. It is important to note that even if a third-party migration tool is provided, manual adjustments to these workflows will still be mandatory.

Now is the time to move and retool current workflows that have been created via third-party workflow or in SharePoint Designer 2013.
