You can copy individual stages of a SharePoint 2013 list-based workflow, but it will copy the actions and part of settings in it. If there is some custom variables, settings in the single task and so on, these will not be copied. It depends on your workflow actions

There are lots of Q&As on this kind of question already. Like this one for instance. You might also like to browse through other questions tagged with the large-list tag to gain an understanding of why it's not a good idea to have too many items in a list.

SharePoint online has its own backup plan and it’s not open for end users. If you need a restoration you can always make a service request for this.As for the MS Flow solution, I don't think this is possible at all, Flow has plenty of restrictions for timeout operations and backing up a whole site can be a time consuming task. So, what are your alternatives?...

I believe I found the solution for this. After completing recreating the library identically, I found that the same problem persisted. After much testing, I found that removing the Required flag for fields that I had set for Required fixed this problem. Once they were all set to Optional, the problem went away.

It's been a while, but I did something similar by first converting the dictionary to a string (Set workflow variable) and then parsing the string in a loop. The returned string looks like this: {"a":"1","b":"2","c":"3"} You can search the web for a number of examples of parsing delimited text in a workflow loop.

You can use PowerShell cmdlets to get the related item information and export them into Excel or csv.

Are user ids associated in this flow, what I mean is, if you are referencing user id, manager user id and any other user ids check if they are valid, you can trying tacing steps into the workflow history list.

Each list item may have multiple versions so I don't think this is possible OOB, you can use JSLink to do so. Or you can create custom view using jQuery HTML.

Don’t have a simple solution, but been down the road of troubleshooting SP 2013 workflows so often I can’t resist tossing in my two cents. If this is a case where you’re just writing plain text to the history list and that fails, I wouldn’t focus too much on the failure message text, but would first determine whether Workflow 2013 service is working at all ...

Instead of using "Update list Item" action, try to use "Set Task Field" action to change the Due Date field for task list. Update: Since the Due Date field is for the current task that all users participated, the due date for all the users will update with the new due date when the workflow triggered.It's by design. As a workaround, you can use SharePoint ...

Using SharePoint Designer, there is a way to wait workflow based on condition. Suppose we have a column named "IsSubmitted" and default value for this column is False. We want to move forward if the Value is True. So if we change the value to True, then the workflow will execute the next steps. See below screenshot about the workflow If the answer helpful, ...

You can either write a custom workflow to achieve your requirements or (havn't tried this just suggesting but then you need designer for this) - create a custom workflow till your field changes and once it does, invoke the ...

The issue was not the connection of the workflow to the list. The issue was the items within the workflow failing to find items in the list. When the workflow was executed the second time one of the items it was trying to pull did not have anything in it so it would give a NullPointerException. It then suspended the workflow so it did not try to run it ...

From the error message, it is a permission issue. Please make sure the user account which triggered the workflow has at least Contribute permissions on the list and the related Tasks list. If the user didn't have permission on the entire web site, you also need to deactivate the feature "Limited-access user permission lockdown mode" at site collection level....

No. This is not possible. You can't specify the FROM address for email messages when you use the Send an email option from a SharePoint Designer 2010 workflow action. Workarounds: As there is no OOTB solution to make it, you will need to use a custom activity like explained here: How to Change From Address of SharePoint Designer workflow. Use SharePoint ...

Depending on what this workflow is doing and to what kind of information (is it sensitive, do you need to restrict who can start the workflow?), you might like to consider using either an Impersonation Step or an App Step for Sharepoint 2010 or 2013, respectively. For a 2010 workflow the Impersonation Step means that the workflow runs under the user account ...
