Do you ever wish you could have a one-off workflow that you can control when it runs instead of having to setup a workflow with a trigger? Using on-demand workflows in Microsoft Dynamics 365 will allow you to run processes and/or update data without relying on a workflow trigger. This can also be run independent of other processes.
