How to add a submissions overview step in your workflow.

Learn how to add a submissions overview step.

What is a submissions overview? 

A submissions overview is a stage within the workflow that allows users to view data of previously submitted tasks. This is useful in instances where one would need to see which data was previously submitted in order to complete an upcoming task. 

Take note 

  • A submission overview step can include multiple previously submitted tasks from the same workflow.
  • You can only create a submissions overview step if you are an "owner" or "admin" of the organization. 
  • You can only create a submissions overview step via the web portal.

6.2 Draw a line from the light blue circle in the submissions overview node to the preceding form node. This is to indicate which task will be receiving the submissions overview.
