The step node can visually represent the current progress of the workflow process.
In the settings of the node, you can enter the name of the node (the name of the node will also be displayed on the label of the step)
In the 'Step' field in the settings, you can choose (or create a new one) an object from the step definition. This object then can be used for sorting
This node cannot be added inside control nodes (decision, loop, parallel, if).
Below we have an example process.
When the process starts all steps will be displayed at the top of the process page.
On the screenshot, we can see all three possible states of the step -
- When the first step is done the tab becomes blue. The step is completed when the next step node is reached or when the whole process is finished.
2. The 'prepare the invoice' step is still active, which means that the node of the step was executed but the next step node was not yet reached. The tab has a blue outline when it`s active.
3. The 'Send invoice to the customer' step is not still started that`s why the tab is gray.
If the process is failed or is canceled, the state of the steps will remain unchanged.
