Changing workflow stages

Workflows help you organize your content in Cloud. With a workflow applied, your staff, contacts, entities, and files are assigned a stage in an effort to create "flows". See Customizing workflows for more information.

Once a stage has passed in the engagement, you will need to update the workflow stage to ensure all staff are aware of the status of the engagement. You can also add workflow stages to uploaded files, Google files, entities, and staff. For example, when you upload a file, you might want to add a retention stage so that you can keep track of documents that will be deleted.

To change workflow stages of files:

  1. U heeft de rol Lezer nodig of vergelijkbare machtigingen.

  2. Select the applicable file where you want to update the workflow stage.

  3. In the details pane, select the Workflow Stage drop-down and select the new stage.
