Finally back home in the city of Johannesburg, and I've been working on all sorts of interesting things! I've put together a little video below showing you how using List Alerts in conjunction with the Workflow History List on Office 365 to allow you to get Workflow Error Notifications.
Step 1: Access the history list for the site you would like to set up Workflow Error Notifications:
Append the following to your Site URL:
For example, if your site URL is https://example.sharepoint.com/sites/hr , then the appended URL appears as follows.
NB: Taken from our Online Help File titled Monitoring workflow status and history
Step 2: Set up your Errored Workflows List View
Creating a view called Errored Workflows with the following configuration:
NB: This resulted in me getting a List View from my Workflow History for all the workflows that have any of the keywords which are put in the Description whenever a workflow gets suspended for whatever reason, sorted by the latest one at the top.

I wish you all a really great weekend!
