Functionality Type Description Workaround
Mail Components Limitation There is no export menu specific for Mail Components. Use the new package export functionality (Export menu).
Mail Components Limitation There is no reference integrity check while renaming or deleting a Mail Component used in a workflow: the corresponding tag will be displayed as an ERROR string at runtime. Before deleting or renaming a Mail Component, check where it is referenced via the following query (change/add the fields according to the languages is use):
SELECT w.name_EN,
FROM   sd_workflow_detail wd
      INNER JOIN sd_workflow w
              ON w.workflow_id = wd.workflow_id
WHERE  wd.email_text_EN LIKE '%nameOfTheMailComponent%'  
Then, if you wish to go on with the deletion/renaming, make sure you edit all the workflow steps returned by the query to delete the Mail Component tag and replace it with the renamed Mail Component as the case may be.

* (Firefox and IE) URL displayed.

* Dysfunctions with the Portrait mode.

Use Google Chrome and the Landscape mode for printing workflows.

Constraints on questionnaires Limitation

Export of workflows Limitation Life cycles are not included in exports of workflows.
