Hello all,

 

I have created a reusable workflow against a Content Type.  and using SharePoint Online (O365) and  developing the workflow in SharePoint Designer 2013.

 

I can build the workflow, save it, publish it and associate it with a list.  I've even tested the workflow against a list item and worked fine. later next day came and tested the same workflow never worked.

When I reopen the workflow, the Content Type is no longer associated with the workflow, and thus to make edits, I must copy the logic into a new workflow associated with the content type.

 

Any help is much appreciated!
