I have a workflow 'xyz' on a list 'A'. The workflow was working fine, But when the column 'xyz' on list 'A' created by the workflow got deleted the workflow isn't working.

How can I fix this?

  • Have you tried republishing that workflow? – Ganesh Sanap May 31 '19 at 15:57
  • Yes, I have, but still, don't have the column and the workflow isn't working. – Aziz Qureshi May 31 '19 at 16:04
  • Do you have any running instances of that workflow? If not then you can try removing that workflow from list settings and again attaching the same workflow to list. – Ganesh Sanap May 31 '19 at 16:14
  • @Ganesh Sanap Thank you for your comment. Your approach is the correct one. I removed the workflow from the list settings and then published the workflow again. I got the related column and the workflow is also working fine. – Aziz Qureshi May 31 '19 at 16:29

Try below approaches:

  1. Try republishing the workflow.

  2. Try removing the workflow from list settings and republish again by attaching the same workflow to list.


This is how I got it to work. I created a column with the same name as the workflow and as a Hyperlink or Picture Type. I then published the workflow and then everything worked fine.

  • As per Ganesh Sanap at the above comment; removing the workflow from the workflow settings from list settings and then republishing it again resolved the issue. – Aziz Qureshi May 31 '19 at 16:31
