Workflow/Inbox Assignments portlet

The Workflow Inbox/Assignments is one of the portlets that might appear on your Start Center. If your workplace has implemented the Workflow feature, a list of your task assignments displays in the Inbox.

A task assignment is a record that is routed to you for action, based on the information contained in a workflow process. The number of records in Inbox/Assignments displays in the portlet.

You use the Workflow Inbox to review assignments, to route assignments, and to complete assignments. You must complete the assignments before a record can move to the next step in a workflow process.

The description that displays in the Inbox portlet is the description of the step from the workflow process, not the description of the record. For example, the description for a purchase order task might be Supervisor approval.
