What has changed in Workflows in CRM 2013

Workflows have changed in the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013. Being one of the widely used components of this Microsoft product, Workflows in CRM 2013 have been loaded with new features. Much to our delight (not so much for the developers, but for the business analysts), Workflows in CRM 2013 can now be triggered to execute in synchronous mode; something which we would have always wanted instead of writing Plugins for that. There are plenty more features, so let’s dive into it and explore them!
