Have you ever downloaded a workflow solution from the community and found that the solution used a more recent version than you were running at work (e.g. 10.5 vs 10.1)? Alteryx won't allow you to open the workflow if your version of the workflow is newer than your software supports. I've seen this a few times in my career and while it makes sense that new functionality or new tools wouldn't work but for the most part, you're likely using tools that the version won't matter with.
For those cases where new functionality isn't present in a workflow, this macro should do the trick for you. After you download the macro and save it to your computer, you can open a new workflow and put the macro on the canvas. There aren't any inputs or outputs to link with the macro. Answer the questions of "where is the workflow" and "what version are you running" and a new workflow will be created. Your original workflow is left as-is and a new workflow with a "WorkflowName_v_##_#" is created.
Attached is a version 10 and version 10.5 copy of the macro. If you are using an older version of Alteryx, let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do about creating a time-machine for you!
