Submit button (Changes)

    A lot of my "Change" users are updating the status of a Change, and then automatically hitting the "Submit" button to the right. This means that when they select "Closed_Completed", they then unwittingly re-submit the Change for approval.


    Can we have some means of mitigating this risk please? I have a couple of suggestions:

    • Have an "Update" button in a bold green, right next to the State selector.
    • Have a confirmatory pop-up dialog "Do you really want to push this Change Request back through the approval process?" when pressing "Submit for approval".
    • Have the state change automatically on selection of a new state, with a confirmation pop-up showing for a few seconds saying "State Changed" or similar.


    Something along these lines or similar would be extremely helpful; the visual cues on state changes are currently poor especially as the "Update Change" button is only seen right at the bottom of the screen beneath any comment threads.

    What problem will this feature solve?:
