How To Know If You've Got New Messages that Need Your Attention?
When Viewing My Assignments, In Progress or Other Process Lists...
If you have actionable messages for a process, the count of actionable messages for that process will appear next to where the count of actionable tasks for that process is displayed.
If a message has been flagged, or there's any other issue present for a process, then the yellow warning flag icon appears for that process.
The sum of your actionable tasks and your actionable messages appears to the right of the My Assignments link in the Main Menu. As shown above, there are 2 actionable tasks, 2 actionable messages and 1 flag, totaling 5 items that need your attention.
When Viewing a Process...
The Messages Menu in the top toolbar for a process shows the count of actionable messages that need your attention.
Red message icons mean there are actionable messages for you to read or resolve for that task.
Blue message icons mean that there are messages for that task but none of them are actionable for you. Someone may have added notes or comments to the message stream for that task or you've already read or resolved all your actionable messages. If there are no unread messages, then the icon will not display a number.
