Deactivating Workflow Rules and Actions

If you deactivate a workflow rule while an instance of a Wait action on the rule is in the pending state, then when the waiting period ends on the instance of the action, none of the remaining actions on the workflow rule are performed, and none of the subsequent workflow rules in the sequence of rules for the record type are triggered.

    NOTE: If there is an Update Values action on the rule, then the action must be preceded by at least one active Wait action on the rule, unless the trigger event for the workflow rule is Before Modified Record Saved. If you attempt to deactivate a Wait action, and if no other Wait action precedes the Update Values action, then Oracle CRM On Demand does not allow you to deactivate the Wait action.
