A stop task prevents you and your team from progressing through a checklist until the stop task has been completed.
This enforces the order of tasks, facilitates hand-offs, improves accountability, and gives process creators more control over how their checklists are used.
Note: Stop tasks are a business pro feature only.
Stop tasks also help to reduce email and inbox clutter, as tasks are only assigned after stop tasks are completed.
Some use cases include: fully enforcing the order of a checklist, gathering requirements before kicking off a checklist, and adding approval points.
