I'm running into a problem that's been mentioned several times, but I couldn't find any actual explanations or resolutions. Using the standard SP Designer workflow action "Pause for Duration" in a workflow deployed to a list in SharePoint Online (Enterprise Plan) simply doesn't seem to work. The workflow pauses and then never resumes; it's stuck at "In Progress" forever. To make sure that it's not related to the logic of my specific workflow, I built a super simple workflow that does nothing other than log a "start" comment, pause for a minute (also tried 2 minutes and 5 minutes) and then log a "resume" comment and it just doesn't work - it logs the start comment and that it is now pausing, but then never resumes. I have heard that the timer may be set to 5 minute intervals and setting shorter durations may still result in a 5 minute pause, but my workflows never resumes at all.
Does anybody have an dea what's going on? I remember reading somewhere that SharePoint Online users don't have access to timer jobs, but I had understood that to mean that you can't set up any timer jobs yourself or configure anything - does it really mean that, simply said, nothing that relies on timers will actually work in SharePoint Online? Is there any documentation that details which features work and which don't?
