Message Box

Message Box

A workflow message box is simply a message that is displayed to the user.   Use a message box to present a simple message to the current user.  Message boxes can be used effectively in a workflow to provide on-going guidance and reminders abut the stages of the workflow.  Once they are displayed, clicking the OK button will close the message and progress the workflow onto the next workflow object.
