Hey there!

 

anyone know if there Is a way to build a flowing record check across w/f to show the outputting status- essentially showing where it get started and where it ended that writes into an output file?

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi @xlz22,

 

Thanks for your question! Is your goal to compare the records on input and output?

that's part of the goal@Amelia.

We would like to keep the records across the workflow to show where it started and ended for the reviewer to approve without re-perform the workflow. Is that possible?

@xlz22,

 

Okay great! It sounds like what you are looking for is either 

 

1. The Test Tool

2. The Message Tool

 

You can use these tools to create your own custom error messaging and workflow messages. For example, you could join together the input and the output and then add a test tool or message tool checking that each record has the same values or that the record count matches. There are many custom tests you can create. 

 

Hope this helps!

 

Amelia
