Sharepoint 2013 Workflows - Where did my Else-If Branch go?

    Question

  • I'm converting our workflows to 2013, and I'm having some issues. For example, I can no longer create else-if branches, only else branches. Am I missing something?

  • Hi,

    By default in SharePoint Designer 2013, we can no longer create else-if branches, but there is a workaround with designer 2013.

    In SharePoint Designer 2010, we can create else-if branches as below:

    But in SharePoint Designer 2013, we can create else branches instead of the above:

  • Ok. It's messier but works. Thank you!

  • I apologize for resurrecting an old thread, but I'm encountering an issue along similar lines, except I cannot even get the "Else" Option

    Trying to use Auto Complete I can type "else" and get "no results"

    I'm on a Sharepoint Online E1 plan if that makes any difference.

  • Apparently while the "Else" Branch is not available from the autocomplete it is available by the menu bar at the top if you are inside the if block.  Or keyboard shortcut (Alt + W + B)

  • How to stop workflow in between the if-else branch in SharePoint 2013 workflow?

    Do we need to create different stages for each condition ?
