Below are some differences between SharePoint designer workflows and Visual Studio workflows.
- SharePoint Designer is a code-free environment.
- Through designer we can make Sequential workflows only.
- Workflows created by designer can be deployed across a site collection only not beyond that.
- These workflows automatically deployed into SharePoint.
- Visio can be used to model workflow logic.
- But no debugging available to step through a workflow at runtime.
- Intuitive support for forms customization.
- Workflows cannot be modified at runtime.
- Compiled just-in-time.
- Code-centric development
- Visual studio workflows supports both sequential and state machines.
- These workflows deployable across entire farm via a feature.
- Must be packaged within a feature and deployed by a farm administrator or in a sandbox.
- No support for Visio.
- Full debugging experience available.
- Less intuitive InfoPath integration. Availability for ASP.NET custom forms.
- Workflows can be modified while running.
- Compiled at design time.
