Add 'default values' Workflow Type Detail block settings for 'days' settings

Add 'default values' Workflow Type Detail block settings for 'days' settings


There are 3 settings under each newly created Workflow Type that relate to retention and by default are not populated:

  • Maximum Workflow Age (days)
  • Completed Workflow Retention Period (days)
  • Log Retention Period (days)

These settings vary in what value you choose to populate them with. Some organizations typically use these. I'm sure some don't.

It would be nice to have block settings for the Workflow Type Detail block (or some other mechanism) that enables you to set a default value any time a new Workflow Type is created by a person using said block.
