Searching Workflows and Workflow Runs

If you have numerous workflows and workflow runs in use, it can sometimes be hard to spot the one you need right away.

You can search your organization for workflows and workflow runs in a number of places, or from your iPhone app.

To search for deleted workflows or workflow runs, head to your organization’s activity feed.

Users: Admins, Full Members and Free Members can see the global search box and library.

Search for workflows

Click into the global “Search” field at the top right of your screen, next to the “Run” button.

A pop-up box will appear, and you can start typing the name of the workflow you would like to find in the box at the top. You can also search workflow descriptions and task names from here.

Scroll through the results to find what you’re looking for, and click one of the results to open that workflow.

You can use shortcut keys to access this search modal. Press “Command + K” (on a Mac) or “Ctrl + K” (on a PC).

Search workflow tags

You can add tags to workflows to allow you to access them faster from your Library.

Search for deleted workflows

If you are an Admin, you can search for any workflows (and workflow runs) that have been deleted from your organization’s activity feed. From here you can restore them if needed.
