On the new version 11.7, it is capable of standby for « an outsider accesses unique URL and completes web form input ». This will allow arranging Steps in the middle of the processes such as, for example, « acceptance report by customer » in the delivery process, or « covenant registration by a new employee » in the recruitment process, or « addition of information by a newly joining member » in the membership registration process.
