Can we start a workflow on Workflow History list i am trying to create a workflow we have got a requirement to do so i was able to create a workflow and publish it but when i go to the list and start manually it does not seem to start?
Per my test in my SharePoint online environment, we can create the workflow 2010 and 2013 in the workflow history list.
After you start the workflow, it will create the column for the workflow in the workflow history list like the picture below. The "app" is the workflow 2013, and the "approvel" is the workflow 2010.
You could check if there is column for the workflow started by you in the workflow history list.
