Name: Enter a name for your GeoSurvey workflow

Filter markers by GeoSurvey step: Enables the ability to associate comments dropped to the particular GeoSurvey Step they were dropped on. These comments are then NOT visible when looking at another GeoSurvey step. This is particularly useful for projects that want to display multiple design options as you can now clearly show what comments are associated with what design option. Switching between design options will change to the set of comments specific to that design option


Note: You can only create one GeoSurvey workflow per project. You must save the GeoSurvey before adding workflow steps.
