Select a stage field

A Stage field allows the workflow context to show additional workflow information, such as the stage name and the estimated completion time for an activity.

Before you begin

Ensure that the workflow field you want to use as the stage field is configured to properly display stages. For detailed steps, see Create a workflow stage field.

About this task

Unless the workflow uses the Requested Item [sc_req_item] table, you can specify which field from the workflow table is the stage field. For workflows that use the Requested Item [sc_req_item] table, the stage field is automatically set to the Stage field of the table and cannot be changed.
