I'm still learning and configuring Intralink 9.1, and have some confusion about how the workflow is determined during a promotion.
The Promotion Preference Manager allows me to define which workflows are available.
However, a workflow can be assigned to the lifecycle phase/gate of a promotions request (wt.maturity.PromotionNotice).
This seems redundant or contradictory.
Can anyone explain the difference?
I copied the life cycle "Promotion Request" and assigned the workflow "Promotion Request Approval Process" as the <u>Phase Process</u> for the first phase (Open). In my site OIR's I assigned this new lifecycle to wt.maturity.PromotionNotice.
When a promotion occurs, the user is being prompted to select a workflow (defined in the Promotion Preference Manage).
Shouldn't the workflow of the promotion request's lifecyle be used automatically (without any prompt)?
What am I missing?
