The workflow in SharePoint Online
In SharePoint Online，even if it takes 60 days since the workflow is completed,the history list will not be deleted, but there is no
public information about it,I want some public information.

I totally agree with you all. We need to see history of approvement during the whole life of document. This feature is really important. Please add it!
Approval workflow information is key to document management and reference for the lifetime of the document. While some info is ok to archive after 60 days, these should always remain available: overall workflow status and date of that status, each approver and date approved by that approver.
We shouldn't have to dig through old emails or ask Admin to find the information in a log to confirm that a document has been approved - that approval information should always remain visible for any item.
The Approver and Date Approved should be captured as column metadata and preserved for the life of the document. This is a must have for document management.
A report format to extract critical pieces of information (workflow completion date and result, for example), would be very helpful.
