Error Console and Indicators

When you build a workflow, add and configure rules, create references and map to SmartObjects, there may be many dependencies between these steps. Example: If you drag a Task step onto the canvas, you need to add task actions. If you add recipients to this task, you need to configure them. If you add a Recipients Rule, you need to configure the rule by adding conditions. Your workflow will not deploysuccessfully if one or more of these dependencies are missing or not configured correctly.

The workflow designer has a built in Error Console that checks these dependencies, as you build your workflow. The error console makes sure your configurations are correct. If not, a visual indicator (red exclamation mark or red dot) shows. Open the error console to see a detailed description of the error and use the Show Me... link to navigate to the step where the error exists.
