Workflows are an integral part of every corporate SharePoint environment. With workflows, you can define complex scenarios and perform various actions based on conditional decision making. A simple example of a workflow is leave approval and rejection process where certain emails are sent, calendars are blocked and payroll is affected. A workflow
can be defined to automate the entire process and make decisions based on individual actions.
The latest version of dSHIFT Migrator (v 5.0.0) for on-premises SharePoint implementations now supports workflow migrations from WSS 3.0 and SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010
. Our valued clients had been asking for this feature from quite some time now and we are happy to announce that this tool supports total migration support for SharePoint Designer workflows, along with their associated features and tasks.
The ability to migrate workflows is a significant improvement in our SharePoint migrator’s existing functionality, enabling you to migrate workflows integrated with your SharePoint site. Workflow migration does not involve any additional steps for users. All you have to do is drag and drop a site from source to destination and all site data and associated workflows will be migrated to your destination SharePoint environment. All migrated workflows are active and fully functional on your destination, requiring no further activation or configuration.
One important thing that you must remember while migrating workflows is the scope of this migration. Workflows might have dependencies on other lists and almost always on site tasks, so unless you migrate a complete site, your workflows will not be migrated.
