Managing Manual Responses List

The Manual Responses section of the My Work page lists all events awaiting a response from the current user. The list can contain the following types of requests :

  • Task entry and exit gates, both primary approval requests and retry requests

  • Stage tasks, both primary approval requests and retry requests

  • Process steps

  • Job steps waiting for manual retry

  • Manual workflow task transitions

Items on the list are ordered in increasing age, with the newest event at the top. As a best practice, respond oldest to newest.

A manual item is automatically removed from the list when the underlying waiting object is approved or rejected. Since a waiting object can have multiple assignees, the item is removed for all users even if only a single user acts on it.
