Tracking Events Reference

During execution a workflow in .NET Framework 4.6.1 raises tracking events as it moves through various stages in its lifetime. The host can subscribe to these events and keep updated on the status of the workflow’s progress during its lifetime. The tracking events raised are discussed in this section.
