As Plumsail Org Chart displays hierarchy, but not matrix, it is important to understand how dotted-line reports appear in the visualization. Please take a look at the example below.

Will Workflow Actions Pack work after removing of code-based sandbox solutions support

The short answer is yes.

Recently Microsoft announced that they will completely remove support of code-based sandbox solutions from SharePoint Online. We received multiple questions about future of Workflow Actions Pack. According to this announce, declarative solutions will remain working. This is a quote from Office Dev Center:

“Note that currently, we do not plan to deprecate or remove support for declarative (no-code) sandboxed solutions.”

Wsp package of Workflow Actions Pack doesn’t contain any code, it is a declarative sandbox solution. So, there is nothing to worry about. Actually, code-based sandbox solutions are not working normally since Office 365 launch. So, nothing changes for you even after removing of code-based solutions support.

If you still any questions about code-based sandbox solutions and Workflow Actions Pack, feel free to comment or send a message to
