Limit to Stages in a SharePoint Designer 2013 Workflow

    Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a limit to the number of stages that you can have in a 2013 workflow?  Or is there a limit in the number of 2013 tasks that can be assigned in a single workflow.

    My 2013 workflow has 8 stages and three 2013 tasks assigned.  It gets to the 6th stage where the 3rd task assignment is and it hangs up.

    Thanks.


    Thanks! Patti N.

  • Hi,

    To add to Lakshman's post, here is the MSDN article on software boundaries and limits of SharePoint designer workflow:

    Workflow limits

    Yet another example:

    SharePoint workflow and limitations with the standard toolset

    Can you please share the no. of variables used in your workflow to analyze further about the issue. Also, is it on List or Library?

  • Thank you all so much for answering this question. What I thought was a workflow limitation ended up being a problem with a copy/paste of an "send an email" action into the workflow from a different workflow and that was what was hanging it up. Unfortunately, SP Designer doesn't give you any hints about it. But it was not a limitation on the number of conditions, actions, variables, stages, steps, or anything.

    Thanks again!

  • So, the workflow is hanging or not working properly because of the fact that you have added Send Email action from different workflow. Thanks for sharing the solution to readers.
