Name Here you give the flow a name. It is mandatory.
DescriptionHere you can add a description of the flow.
The name on the step is shown in the history log over completed flows with a description of what has been done on each specific step(written by the owner when completing a step). The description given beneath the tab General will be sent to the owner of a step when he/she has a task to perform.
The message box is found furthest down in the side list.
Decline actionHere you decide the action in the case of a decline. The available options are:
- Will abort the publishing flow, already made changes in earlier steps will stay.
Continue - Will continue the process in the publishing flow regardless of the decline.
Restart - Will restart the flow, already made changes on the page will stay.
There is also a possibility to set the maximum time for a specific step and the action if the time limit is exceeded.
Action timeout (hours)The maximum allowed time for a step to be attended to. If time is set to 0 the publishing flow will always wait for the current step to be attended to by either the owner or a person having the permission rights to attend to it.
Action on timeoutIf the action timeout is set the action on timeout needs to be set. The available options are:Continue, Restart, Abort.
