A navigation item on the sidebar or a button on the upper div to reach a flow’s past executions. This should open a list of past n executions (scrollable perhaps) which enable to launch that instance in a new window.
I find myself going back to the past runs, especially during new complex flow creations, to sort of use it as a step by step debugging tool.
It is quite time consuming, feels even more so on such a modern tool as n8n, to switch to another tab, click executions, filter by name, then open it there.
Another way this would be helpful is in cases where one opens a workflow after a while and wants to see how that flow is doing. I mean like a general health check. A single button on that specific flow would show last n runs and it would be almost like a dashboard in terms of the data it shows.
Sure, if you need more user input or some UI ideas on how I envisioned it, I’d be glad to chip in
