  • Hi Sabee Sharif.

    ShareGate Desktop does not support the migration of workflow tasks and workflow history, as you can read at https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000600747-Workflow-Status-History-and-Tasks-are-not-preserved.
    I think you should migrate the whole content database of the site collection, since also using Export-SPWeb/Import-SPWeb cmdlets won't allow you to move the workflow associated to a SharePoint list.

    Bye.

  • Hi Sabee,

    As Luigi says, if you want to migrate workflow history at the same time, you should choose content DB approach.

    In addition, if you still can't see workflow history after migrating using the content database method, you can refer to this:
