    Hello,

    I got requirement to pause the workflow for each action and continue the workflow after validating the completed action. Any suggestions or ideas on how to add this feature to the actions or workflow.

    Suggest researching the "breakpoint" feature.  This is a setting that you can change on each workflow task.  It causes that task to wait for human intervention before proceeding.

    Another option would be to introduce an additional CALL task.  A CALL task can be configured to send out a popup request for human response.  Then clicking on the popup could cause the workflow to continue.  (The popup request only occurs within the Automic interface)

    Create a new CALL/STANDARD object, configure its recipients and notification tabs, and experiment with it by executing it.  If the recipients of this call object respond by clicking "YES" it will finish with an ANY_OK result it would then allow successors to run.  But if they click "NO" it will finish with a bad result which can then block the workflow from continuing.
