Hi

I have a simple Workflow to move any Completed Tasks to another List called "Completed Tasks":

Step 1

If Task:Status equals Completed

Step 2

Copy Item in Current Item to Completed Tasks

Step 3

Delete item in Current Item

This is working great however we have found a few tasks which were upated, but still either In Progress of Waiting On Someone Else have been moved over and I dont know how to manually move them back.

Ideas?

To move them back, you could create a manually triggered workflow on the second list that does the same as the first workflow, but the opposite direction.

Steps can run independently of other steps in a workflow.
I would place all of the items under a single step.
see this example:
