Always On is the term used to describe a Workflow that executes continuously until explicitly stopped. Workflows that are enabled for Always On usually commence with a Trigger Node. When a sequence of execution completes, control is returned to the Trigger Node which blocks until the trigger condition is met.

In order to allow a Workflow to set to always on, the Can Run Alwayscheckbox in the Workflow Design Settings Pane must be checked.

Once this setting is enabled, user can start a Workflow in Always On mode by clicking the Turn On  button on the Workflow Landing Pane. When this option is enabled, the workflow will be started automatically whenever it stops. It may stop due to a Workflow error or after an engine restart.

Workflows that support both Run Now and Always On should have both the Start  and Run Now  Execution Flow Outputs connected on the Start Node.

See for an example of this pattern.
