CM Phase Usage Dialog Box

The CM Phase Usage dialog box for a request type displays the permitted operations users can perform at each CM phase. It consists of a table of CM Phases down the left hand side and a set of operations along the top. A set_icon.gif means that the operation is permitted at that phase, and a unset_icon.gif. means the operation is not permitted. For more details, see Rules for Request Lifecycles.
