Processes can be toggled on and off on the Process Manager page. Below are the key differences between processes that are toggled on vs. off.

Process Toggled On

  • The process shows up on the Apply page, regardless of the start/end date range. 
    • For a public visibility process, this is true for all applicants. 
    • For a restricted visibility process, this is true for applicants who have the access code. 
    • An internal visibility process will not show up on the Apply page for applicants, even when it's toggled on.
  • If it's within the start/end date range of the process (or if the process doesn't have a start and end date), applicants can start a new request within the process. 


Process Toggled Off

  • The process does not show up on the Apply page.
  • Applicants cannot start a new request within the process. 
  • Existing requests within the process are not affected. 
    • For example, applicants working on a draft form (e.g. application, follow up) can still submit the form.
      • A hard due date (set in the corresponding stage of the process) or an administrator abandoning the request would prevent the applicant from submitting a form. Toggling the process off alone does not prevent them from submitting a form.
  • The process can be archived, keeping the Process Manager page organized.
