Instance View

From the Workflow Dashboard, you can click on any workflow instance name to open the instance view. Use the instance view to:

  • Review form responses

  • Easily complete approvals, tasks, and forms, or jump into Slack to comment in the thread

  • See timestamps for who approved the workflow or completed tasks

  • View what steps still remain and see why an instance is bottlenecked

  • Quickly toggle between instances to see where they all stand using the 🔼 and 🔽 icons

Using the instance view

When you open up an instance, you'll see the requester, start date, status, and form responses on the left. On the right you'll see more details about the current step, including the ability for assignees to take action and a link to view the thread in Slack.

Use the "Progress" tab on the left to view a timeline of every step in your workflow and to see more details about each one.

This is what an approval step looks like:

This is what a form step looks like:

And this is what a task list step looks like:

Taking action

Assignees can take action directly from the instance view, either by completing approvals, checking off tasks, or filling out forms. The instance thread in Slack will update in real-time as work is completed.

Sharing an instance

Each instance has a unique URL, so if you ever need to share an instance for someone else to review or take action on, you can send them a direct link to it. User permissions still apply; users must be either an admin or observer for the workflow overall, or the requester or assignee for that specific instance in order to be able to view it on the web.
