You can configure a free text comment box that allows recruiting users performing the status change to capture additional information. Status change comments require Professional Services configuration in Provisioning.

  1. Go to Provisioning >> Company Settings
  2. Enable the option "Allow users to optionally provide comments on application status change".

Note: This comment box is optional and cannot be made required. No additional fields can be added to this page. Spell checking, legal scans, and rich text editor features are not supported in this comments box.

The comment field is reportable and it can be found in the App Status Audit Trail table in Reporting.
