How to Skip a Stage

With Drutas, skipping a stage hides it from the task sidebar and team grid, allowing focus on essential stages for specific tasks. You can skip stages either from the Workflow settings page or directly in the task sidebar.

To skip a stage from your Workflow, follow these steps:

  • Navigate to the Workflow settings page and find the stage panel.
  • Hover over the stage you wish to skip, an eye icon will appear.
  • Click on the eye icon. It will change to a crossed eye, indicating that the stage has been skipped.

To skip stages in your task sidebar, follow these steps:

  • Open a task sidebar 
  • Go to the workflow elements panel towards the bottom of the task 
  • Hover over the stage you wish to skip, an eye icon will appear

Skipping a stage from the task sidebar has been shown in the below image:
