How To Set Up a CRM Workflow Timeout Condition


This is a common questions that I’ve encountered – how to setup a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Workflow Timeout Condition (not the Workflow Wait until Condition) – harder to find it in the Workflow designer.  The CRM Workflow Wait until Condition on the other hand is pretty straight forward to find in the CRM Workflow designer. 

Here are the steps to setup a Microsoft CRM Workflow Timeout condition:

  • Create a new CRM Workflow process.  Run this workflow in the background is required for any Timeout condition
