Complete Tasks in a Process

Explains how to complete tasks assigned to you.

Your process administrator creates process tasks and assigns them to you to complete. They can send a notification with a link to your process guide where you can see and complete your assigned tasks. 

You can:

  • Take action on instruction tasks
  • Edit a sheet for content related to sheets
  • View the specific dashboard for content related to Dashboards
  • View reports for content related to Dashboards
  • Add notes for workflow or general tasks

Before You Begin

  • New to Processes? See Concept: Processes and Process Tasks.
  • Required permissions for accessing and completing tasks:
    • Access Process Tracker
    • Complete Tasks Assigned to Self 
    • Complete Any Task. 
  • Required permissions for accessing content associated with tasks:
    • Approve Levels for workflows. All users including those with only leaf-level access need the Approve Levels permission to view, submit, and approve workflow tasks through their process guide. 
    • Access Sheets for web sheets. For Assumption sheets, the user must be assigned to the sheet.
    • Access Reports for web reports
    • Access Dashboards for dashboards
