VIDEO – Workflow 2010 Deprecated User Experience (UX)

Wanted to share brief demo of the user experience in web browser and SharePoint Designer after Microsoft deprecates the Workflow 2010 feature.   SharePoint Designer 2013 continues to display the workflow menu and definition.  However, during publish we see the error below.   Web browser view displays a yellow toolbar with link to learn more about the deprecated removed feature.   Tenant used for this video is set to “first release” for early preview and in that case is showing the Workflow 2010 feature removed sooner than other tenants.   Sharing this information with site owners early can help steer towards Microsoft Flow (PowerAutomate) and plan for replacement features.

Cheers
