Workflow properties

The Workflow properties dialog box gives you quick access to useful information and settings for the selected workflow. You can use it to quickly check the current settings, change permissions, assign a different event listener, or specify an action to take in the event of an error condition or exception during workflow execution. You can also turn on workflow revision history, and from that point on, track its revision history or revert to previously-saved versions of the workflow.


The General tab shows the name of the workflow, and indicates who created or last modified it, along with the date and time it was last modified.


The Security tab displays a list of any groups or users who have access to the workflow you selected, and indicates which permissions those users or groups have for that workflow. You can also use this tab to add, change, or remove user permissions for a particular workflow. See "Setting workflow permissions".

Event listeners

The Event listeners tab lets you change the event listener assigned to the workflow, or create/assign a new one. See "Event listeners".

Exception handling

The Exception handling tab lets you specify an action to take when an exception is encountered during the execution of this workflow process. You can send an email message (based on an email template) to a designated recipient, or you can automatically launch another workflow, or both.

Revision history

You can use the revision history feature to log all revisions to your workflow processes, including who made the changes, when the changes were made, and why. Revision history also makes it easy to revert at any time to a previous version, or to save different revisions and use them independently. See "Revision history".
