Pause a Workflow

I would like the ability to pause a workflow, thus keeping all users at the step they are in, and then unpause it a few days later.  Adding delay steps will not accomplish the same thing.  For example, I want to pause a campaign during a holiday week, but start it again the following week without losing anyone.  There is no way to successfully do this with a delay step unless every user is at the same step - which obviously will never be the case.

Hi folks!


Thank you all for taking the time to submit, upvote, and comment on this Idea. We hear you loud and clear, and we agree that this functionality is important. We are currently evaluating if this idea is feasible and, if so, how our team will implement it


While we cannot currently provide a timeline, any developments will be communicated right here on this thread.

@MeganLegge - A month since your request for more information via that form and nothing. If we're all lucky this will be over before WF pausing exists. 


Hopefully, the countless hours lost to our efforts to find a workaround, or worse, our reputation lost due sending inappropriate automated messages does not compound the already dire situation for many businesses.


C'mon Hubspot - Be Better.


It would be so nice to have this ability!!


It´s a good idea, and this ability it would be an main requirement. Please, try to improve it :-) Our live would be so much better.

While it happens, I´m working with WF partitions. I mean, instead of working on 1 WF, I´m workin with more than 6 WF "playing" with the delays and propierties. If your reason for stopping is a date, you can modify the date properties and the next WF partition behaviour. 

Not sure if I could explain it well :-)
