  • I have got the prime differences .. but what I need to know is, the situation when we prefer custom workflow activity instead of plugin?

  • The simplest one is whether or not it needs to be synchronous or asynchronous.  Plugins are always synchronous, whereas workflows are mostly asynchronous (except in CRM 2013 where synchronous workflows now exist).

    The other comparison to make would be if you need non-developers to configure the custom code.  A custom workflow activity can be used by non-developers as part of their workflow creation process, and a plugin can't.
