Add Automation Step Descriptor


Good Day


We have a project with more than 100 automation steps and we are finding it hard to update as we are unable to see the automation task description from the automation view.


Is there a way to add a description to each step of the automation to identify what the action is doing. See screenshot of view we see:

Hi, @Bashir Jahed ! As an alternative, you can use Business Process Manager add-on, developed by my team.

There you can add as many steps as you need and name each step to know what every task is doing.


Try it for Free for the first 30 days or learn more about add-on opportunities.

I'm not sure what you are looking for here.  "And: create a new sub-task in project system access management" seems perfectly clear to me.

I think he is looking to add some additional information so that you know which subtask you are creating. The only way to see the content is by opening the action which could be annoying when you have tons of actions.
