Permanent Buttons will always appear at the bottom of a PM form, which are:

  • Save and Close
  • Cancel


Additional Buttons and Priorization of Actions:

  • Finalize Form / Sign / Confirm 1:1 (only one of these 3 can exist - these 3 cannot co-exist)
  • Reject
  • Send to Person (1 or more in an I-Step)
  • Get Feedback / Recall Feedback
  • Send to previous step
  • Add modifier
  • Add Signer




Example below - Iterative Step between 3 users (the 2 users to whom you can send the form will be appearing as dropdown menu)



  • This is a universal behavior and the order can't be customized.
  • The PM form only allows a maximum of five buttons to appear at the bottom of the form (Additional or More Actions remain a button with dropdown menu - as seen in screenshot above)
  • Finalize Form button is suppressed for a user who does not have access to it (applies to users in I-Step or C-Step who are not "exit" users)
