Process Owners are the primary assignees and administrators responsible for a Process.
Who gets to be a Process Owner?
Any Member of your team can be a Process Owner.
There are two ways to specify who will be the Process Owner for a Process:
If Process Template does not specify a Process Owner by name, then the Member of your team who starts that process from the Template will become its Owner.
When authoring a Process Template, you may also add one or more team Members to be the default Process Owners.
What can Process Owners do?
Any Task not specifically assigned to anyone else becomes assigned to the Process Owners to either complete, or assign to someone else.
If a Process needs to be changed, Process Owners may pause and edit the process, then resume it after changes have been made.
If a Process needs to be pause, Process Owners may edit the process and leave it in the "Paused for Editing" state until they want to resume it later.
If a Task needs to be reassigned, a Process Owner can do it.
If a Due Date needs to be changed, a Process Owner can do that.
If a completed Task needs to be Reopened, a Process Owner or the Task Assignee may do that.
If a Task needs to be completed on behalf of the Task Assignee, the Process Owner may do that.
If a Process needs to be Stopped before its completion, a Process Owner may do that.
If a completed or stopped process needs to be reopened and resume, a Process Owner may do that by editing the Process, and resuming it with at least 1 not yet completed task in it.
