  • Hi SamDany,

    It is a known issue.

    To restore previous version of a workflow, we can directly access Workflow Settings page for the list/library.

    1. Open the list/library.

    2. Under the List/Library tab, click the Workflow Settings.

    3. Click “Remove, Block, or Restore a Workflow”

    4. Check “Allow” for the workflow which you want to restore.

    Best Regards,

    Linda Zhang
