I'd like to know how sustainable workflows built in SharePoint Designer 2013 will be now that Flow has been introduced.
I have tried to recreate my workflows in Flow but there are just some functionalities that either do not exist properly yet in Flow, or are causing performance issues. For example, getting a document link based on a document title, which I used to be able to do with a workflow variable in SPD, but now I have to do an "Apply to Each" which seems to be taking literally days to complete.
This is just one example of where the new tech does not meet my needs yet.
But at the same time, I'm trying to build these workflows to be usable for several years, and I don't want to build on legacy programs if they will be obsolete and there will be no way to migrate the flows in future.
Does anyone know the roadmap/support for SPD 2013 workflows?
Thanks for your feedback, if you would these features of SharePoint workflows to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
More details about the roadmap/support of SharePoint 2013 workflows, please check the following article:
Would it be possible to be more precise because unfortunately Flows does not answer or hurt complex business scenarios like the 2010/2013 designer flows.
Microsoft seems to want to support Infopath + SharePoint designer until 2026 (see more because these two components are present on SharePoint server 2019), is this the case for SharePoint Online? It would be really interesting to get visibility
Thank you for your return
@Anonymous, yes it will be supported in SP Online till 2026.
You can read more about Infopath forms support here
and (Hint check FAQ)
Hope this helps.

I confirm, Flow remains very limited against the old engine of Workflows 2010 and 2013 (soon 10 years), I never really understood this back on the part of Microsoft, 9 years later, we still find ourselves doing workflows 2010...
