General Tab of the State Property Editor

Element Description
Type (Display only) The state type.
Name The name of the state. For clarity, state names should be unique within a workflow as it appears to a particular role; but your design could include multiple states with the same name that appear for users in different roles.
Note: You cannot rename system states: (Any, Deleted, Email, Submit).
Internal name View or modify the internal name of the state. This field is read-only if the process app has been published. The default value of this field is the name of the workflow, a period, and the state name. The internal name cannot contain spaces or additional periods. The maximum number of characters is the same as the number for the Name field.
Note: Internal names are not used for system states.
Tip: You can copy the internal name and paste it into a script or a Web service to reference the state.
Status Select the state status (active or inactive).
Note: This field is not displayed for system states.
Owner Select the owner of the state.
Note: This field is not displayed for system states.
Subtask Select a binary/trinary field to determine the status of all subtasks. The value of this field supplies the subtask status ("In Progress," "Completed," or "Rejected") associated with each state.
Note: This field is not displayed for system states.
Time capture (Optional) This option is visible only if the Time Capture is turned on for the workflow. Select to show or hide Time Capture options on the state form. By default, the state inherits the setting applied for states at the workflow level. For more information, see About Time Capture.
End-user help text Click Edit to open an HTML editor and add optional comments or notes about the purpose of the state. The text you enter is displayed to users.
