Fulfill Action Items via the Service Record page

You can update Action Items from the Service Record Page inside the Resolution Panel Action Items tab. The Action Item tab displays the Workflow Phases (collapsible), in the order they appear in the SR Template.

Phase Progress Bar

The Phase Progress Bar (collapsible) is shown per Phase in the Action Items tab, and includes a counter of the Action Items completed thus far.

In a scenario where a certain Action Item depends on a condition that isn’t met, the Progress Bar will display as 100% complete yet the Action Item counter doesn’t indicate that all items were completed.

Completed Action Items are indicated (when a Phase is expanded) by a filled-in checkmark icon.
