  • Hi Nilukshi,

    Since you use SharePoint Online, we are not able to check the ULS log for SharePoint Online except to connect Microsoft support.

    For your issue, how did the workflow 2013 not work? Is there any error message in your list items workflow details?

    Have you set the Item-level Permissions in the list advanced settings to restrict who can edit the items? Try to uncheck “Automatically update the workflow status to the current stage name” option in workflow settings in SharePoint designer and check the result.

    Best regards,

    Grace Wang

  • Hi Nilukshi,

    Whether this issue occurred in other lists? You can create 2013 workflow in other lists and check again.

    Try to switch to another account to start the workflow, check the results.

    Best regards,

    check workflow history list. It may contain additional information about failure - this is usually first step in troubleshooting workflows
