How do I put a component such as an article on HOLD without stopping the workflow?

This topic describes a workaround for using the current capabilities of ARTEMIS to place a component on hold. This does NOT prevent a workflow from progressing.

Putting a task on Hold makes it visible on the Tasks screen and on the WIP reports.


Be aware that the workflow can advance even when the status changes to Hold. Do NOT use Hold for a task with an AwatingVendor status, such as an eTPThe electronic Transfer Process , an automated method of transferring and tracking files. signal task (Composition) or a satellite system task (TACThe Author Center: A browser-based, automated interface for authors to deliver, retrieve, correct, and return proofs. or Author Corrections).
On these AwaitingVendor tasks, the Hold change described in step 1 below will not be an Active task when the files are returned. Therefore you lose their visibility on the Status column

To put a component on Hold
  1. Edit the current active task and change the Task Status to Hold.
  2. Add a Remark with Hold as the category. Include the original task status, the reason for the hold and the date the hold was placed. Include instructions for the reader to not click Confirm when the Remark dialog box is displayed unless the reader is removing the Hold.

    When a user later edits the any of this component's tasks, she will see the Remark dialog box.
  3. Click the Record ID in the Task screen.

    ARTEMIS displays the Article Details screen.
  4. Click Edit, and then change the component title to include **HOLD** at the beginning. This gives the item more visibility on the Tasks list.


If a component is on Hold, you can remove the Hold.

To remove a component from Hold
  1. Edit the current, active task with a Hold Status.
  2. When the Remark dialog box opens, click Confirm.
  3. Change the Task Status to its prior status setting. You can find this setting in the Remark.
  4. Edit the component title and remove the **HOLD** text.
  5. Complete this task as Normal. Do not change to Closed.

Viewing Components on Hold
