Then, I want to forward the results of that into some pool where other people will grab it and do something with it.”




It needs … ultimately, everything … the manager has to sign off on everything because in this place, they have two levels of quality assurance




…and finally, we want whoever initiated this needs-to-know that it was done so we’re closing the loop….




...and the workflow terminates.
