SharePoint workflow email link to record

MAReeder 1 Reputation point

I have created several workflows, but one in particular has the link to the record, with the ID. When you click on it, the record opens, but all content is blank. The URL is correct (with the correct ID). When I cancel out of the record, and access from the list, all the content is there. I'm perplexed!

    Hi @MAReeder ,

    The timer job Workflow Auto Cleanup runs daily to permanently deletes workflow instances and related tasks that still exist 60 days (default value) after a workflow is completed or canceled. Workflow history items themselves are not deleted, but the entry point to view them on the status page for a particular instance of a workflow will no longer be available. That is, the workflow status link on SharePoint will be removed by the timer job.
