Synonym statuses

You can create synonym statuses if your business processes for record approvals or for status changes involve multiple steps for each approval or status change.

For example, your business process might call for three different people to review a record before it is considered approved. There is a single status for waiting for approval and a single status for approved. You can create synonym statuses of waiting for approval that represent each of the preliminary approvals before the record is considered approved.

You use the Domains application to add synonym values to a value list. For more information about creating synonym statuses, see the Domains Help for this product.
