When will a workflow stop?

When will a workflow stop?

Instant and time-based workflows will stop when

  • the source list has been deleted.
  • all of the defined actions have been stopped. 
  • custom fields used in the workflow criteria have been deleted.

One-time workflows will stop after triggering at the scheduled time.

Activity-based workflows will stop when:

  • all of the defined actions have been stopped.
  • custom fields used in the workflow criteria have been deleted.

                                                                            Actions will stop due to the following reasons: If the action is 'Add to another list', the target list (i.e. the list you've selected to add the subscribers to) may have been deleted. If the action is 'Push to Zoho CRM', the custom field mapped to ...

                                                                            When you freeze a workflow, it will stop accepting new contacts and will perform actions only for subscribers who have already entered the workflow. You can resume the workflow anytime.
                                                                          • What will happen if I shut down a workflow?

                                                                            A workflow that is shut down will not perform actions on any contact, even those who have already entered the workflow. You cannot activate a workflow once it is shut down.
                                                                          • When will an instant workflow trigger, and who will it trigger for?

                                                                            The workflow will trigger for any contacts as soon as they meet the specified criteria.
                                                                          • On whom will an activity-based workflow trigger?

                                                                            This workflow will trigger for contacts who perform specific actions. For example, if you set an activity-based workflow for campaign opens, it will trigger for any of the contacts who open the campaign.
