When the step is run in the Workflow Manager web app, the web page or web app defined in the step opens in the Work page. Step information is displayed in the Details panel and can be minimized by clicking the Minimize button .
When the step is run in ArcGIS Pro, the web page or web app defined in the step opens in a view in ArcGIS Pro.
When this step is being run by another person, the Running icon appears on the job.
When you run the step, you can perform the following actions:
- Click Pause to pause the step.
- Click Finish to finish the step.
If the step isn't optional, the step must be run or paused at least once before it can be finished.
