SmartSimple offers the ability to define multiple submit buttons against individual statuses within a UTA.

The buttons can also be configured so that they are presented to subsets of users, perform certain validation checks and can push the event to a specific status.

To create a Submit Button:

1) Click the Settings tab within the UTA, then click on the Submit & Save Buttons link in either the Level 1 settings section, or Level 2 settings section.

Field Permissions

Submit and Save buttons can be configured to control when a button is visible or not visible based on Type - Field Permissions and Role - Field Permissions using the Allow View and Deny View settings.


You can use the URL to display a Web Page View as a confirmation page. Use the following syntax: @custom field name.value@

The Submit Annotation type button will only appear on the record if it is under Status lock. This button type is used to submit field modifications and will stamp the revision log with changes.
