Replacing flow with new process but what about existing workflow states?

I have a Power Automate workflow that is being used for Staff Declarations (from Microsoft Forms) – approval actions etc.

Due to a requirement to extend the time that different parts of this flow run for, I have split this flow out into two separate workflows in Dev.

In order to put this into Live, I am wondering whether I can simply turn off the existing workflow and then enable the new ones – the only query I have is around the workflows that are still in a pending state, eg. Waiting to be approved etc – will these still work if the workflow is disabled or will that kill the existing approvals?

 

Would appreciate recommendations around this.

 

Thanks.

@sudosaurus  Everytime when flow runs it creates new instance and instances are independent to flow status. So if you turn off the flow your existing runing instances will continue to work normally.
