• Proposed by Cornell University
• Cornell offers to do the work
• Target Version: Rice 1.1

Currently, an item shows up in a user's "Outbox" only if they have taken an approval, disapproval,
acknowledge, or fyi action on it.

Cornell proposes that all documents taken action on by a user should appear in that user's Outbox. In
order to fully satisfy this request, items initiated and submitted by a given person must also go into
that person's "Outbox". This currently is the missing piece of functionality.

User Guide
An end user would have the document item show up in their Outbox if they submit that document for
workflow routing.

Technical Guide
1. In ActionListServiceImpl.java, in the "saveOutboxItem(actionItem)" method, remove the check
for an action taken. This would then always add an item to the person's Outbox after it has been
deleted from a user's Inbox.

Client Developer Guide
A client developer would not have to do anything different. This feature would be inherent to Kuali Rice.

Verified that this is still not taken care of if 2.0 so still a valid item.

This has been sitting for a long time. Any hope of seeing this addressed any time soon? An end user of our KC implementation complained to me about this.
