  • With Workflow you can take action "Apply Template" While with Subscriptions  you can not

    Subscriptions can be configured for other classes rather than predefined ones on Workflow

    Workflows can run on incident create and Update while Subscriptions can run with time base beside those

    Both are fine for notifications, I am using Subscriptions if no action required
