SharePoint newbie here.

I have been working on a list on SharePoint online that has a simple workflow.

Due to requirement changes, I did some changes to the workflow and published it. However, when a new item is created it still runs on a old workflow instance (Previous version?).

Does anyone know why it doesn't automatically run on the latest version?

Double publish the workflow and compare the results, if the issue still exists, check the following:

If it is SharePoint 2010 whether there is previous version workflow:

enter image description here

If it is SharePoint 2013 platform workflow, I would suggest you recreate the workflow.


You can check whether versioning is enabled for the Workflow (wfsvc) library in SharePoint Online where the workflows are stored. For details, visit SharePoint-201-workflow-hidden-library
