  • We are NOT seeing the full history in the footer of a pending policy... only the last one or two transactions... Any ideas on why ?

  • Hi Beverly! That is because the history only reflects the life-cycle for the current version of the policy. When a policy completes the Approval Workflow process, a new version is created so you will only see the history of that version. To see the historical information for other versions of the policy, click the All Versions link in the top right, and you can review any additional transactions from prior versions there.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'll revise the text in this article to make it clearer.
