From SPD or VS? You need more detail in your question. What are you trying to achieve? –  Charles Lee Mar 11 '10 at 8:47

I think you mean if there is an easy way to navigate to the Default View for the History List, using the browser?

I believe the History List is a hidden list, so I don't expect you to find any hyperlinks pointing to it.

You could add the link yourself (i.e. add to quicklaunch), either through the UI or create a Feature if you want a more global and reusable solution.

Got you...guess using a feature to add it in quicklaunch should do. I was just thinking if I can reach it somehow through UI. Thanks Anyways. –  Anonymous Mar 11 '10 at 12:24
    
As far as I know you should be able to add your own links to the quick launch through the UI, but if you want to have this link on all sites in a site collection you would probably want to automate the process of adding the link. –  Jaap Vossers Mar 12 '10 at 16:05
    
The URL to get to that list is: https://<yoursite>Lists/Workflow%20History/AllItems.aspx See my answer below. –  lwbecker2 Mar 13 at 21:08

The Workflow history list is hidden. But that doesn't mean you can't browse to it if you know the URL.

https://<yoursite>Lists/Workflow%20History/AllItems.aspx

Will give you access.

You can also unhide the list temporarily with Powershell:

 $web = get-spweb  https://<sharepointsitename>
 $web.Lists["Workflow History"]
 $wfhistory = $web.Lists["Workflow History"]
 $wfhistory.Hidden = $false
 $wfhistory.update()

Then you can see the workflow history under View All Site Content at https:///_layouts/viewlsts.aspx

After you are done:

$wfhistory.Hidden = $true
$wfhistory.update()
$web.dispose
