Hey @alexnemes,

It isn’t possible unless you have a backup, Oddly enough I raised an internal feature request the other day to archive workflows instead of deleting them which would have helped with this one.


Does this mean that the ability to archive workflows is in the works? I was about to create a feature request for it.

Hey @MeesJ,

I did see that we have started on workflow versions which may help.
