  • Hi Manish,

    For SharePoint Online there are support for both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 workflows.

    You can use any of below tool to create Workflow,

    • SharePoint Designer 2013
    • Visual Studio 2013
    • Visual Studio 2015

    Before working on SharePoint 2013 Workflow, you need to configure Admin Central Settings,

    Hope this information is useful.

    Please let me know in case any further information needed.
