Lately I worked on a workflow that had to be restarted each day I used the Pause approach but I couldn't make it work, do you think Loops could handle the repetitions better than the Pause or are they same?

Thank's in advance.

  • Won't give you a -1 but it depends on what you actually need, infinite loops vs pause? It will be easier to actually show the workflow and try to debug it instead

  • Why can't you just set a trigger to run the workflow when conditions are met?

It depends on what you want to accomplish. If you are waiting for an event like a change to a column or a task completion, I would use the loop because it can help you catch things like if someone assigned to a task rejects the task, the loop can be used to catch that and reassign it. Using a pause feature would not let you do that and would just proceed to the next step. The loop is more flexible.

I use pauses for simple things that I know the interval and I don't need to catch any variances like sending a reminder after two weeks.

Hope it helps.
