  • This is an expected system behaviour when "Skip Step to continue the process" is used in the Signature step
  • When "Skip Step to continue the process" is used to route a form from the Signature step to Completion, any data entered on the form in the Signature step will not be visible in the Completed form


To make the comments entered in the Signature step visible in the Completed form, route the form using the Route Form tool and select "Move the form on behalf of...":

  1. Route the form back to the Signature step
  2. Route the form from the Signature step to Completion and select "Move the form on behalf of..."
