We are implementing a workflow in 2011 SP1 that has email generation and some activities that require the system to wait.
Example: User changes content and moved for approval. We send an email to the next user to let them know they need to approve. If the user does not finish the activity in a set amount of time, we send a reminder email to them that they need to finish. We are also throwing translation in the mix and are waiting for the translation to finish before publishing all languages.
What happens to the thread when the Workflow Service stops? When the server is rebooted? Does the service start the thread back up and continue where it left off? Is there a way to keep the state of the thread?
Thanks in advance.
