Classic Dataverse background workflows

Workflows automate business processes without a user interface. People usually use workflow processes to initiate automation that doesn’t require any user interaction.

There are two types of workflows:

  1. Real-time workflows. See the Power Apps documentation for more details about real-time workflows.
  2. Background workflows.

To create background workflows, you must select the Run this workflow in the background (recommended) check box, as displayed in the following image.
