Workflows end automaticallySOLVE
Aug 16, 2018 6:13 AM
You can't configure a workflow to turn off automatically.
However, you can use date properties to prevent enrollment after a specified date.
For example, when preparing new lead nurturing workflows, but I want contacts in old ones to complete the workflow, I add an enrollment criteria like 'create date is before X' to stop new contacts going in.
Hope this helps.

Q: Is it possible to [force] workflows end automatically at a given date? If not, the only way is to turn workflows manually inactive??
Short A: No. However, ...
As Phil pointed out, you can't force workflows to 'turn off' automatically. And you can certainly use date-related enrollment criteria.
You may also use a Date Centered Workflow and set all actions to occur BEFORE the target date. This will not make your workflow 'inactive' on the target date, but it will effectively disable any future actions from occuring after that point in time.
Finally, at the end of your workflow(s), you may always tell it/them to auto-create a task reminding you, "Hey, I'm done ... turn me off!" 🙂
Just a thought.
