Workflow stage sets You can create stage sets that are named groups of stages commonly used together. These stage sets can be used in any number of workflows on different tables. A single stage set usually represents a process, such as the stages required to display the progress of a service catalog request. You can also assign a stage set as the default set for workflows on specific tables. In an active context, workflow stages provide summary-level feedback about the progress of a workflow. Stage icons display the status of each activity as it is being driven by a workflow. The system updates a Stage field, defined in the workflow properties, to indicate the workflow's progress through the possible stage values.
