When users are assigning items in an action plan, they can choose to require a signature from an item's assignee before other items in the action plan can be completed. This is referred to as 'Blocking Functionality'.
Signatures from an item's assignees can either be required before all remaining items in the same section can be completed or before all items in all remaining sections can be completed. By blocking items in the same section only, assignees to items in different sections can complete their work in parallel with each other. Using this blocking functionality can help ensure all action plan items are completed in the correct order, as necessary.
