You can forward an object to another user for further investigation. The object will be forwarded to the recipient’s worklist. Depending on the context, you can forward one or several objects.
Use the forward pattern if you would like to forward an object to another user for further investigation.
The forward function can be accessed in the details footer (for split screen), in the app footer bar (for full screen) and in the master list footer. If the user switches the master list to multiselection mode, several objects can be sent to one recipient.
Use the text Forward to label the action button. Do not use an icon.
Behavior and Interaction

There is also an entry field for the user to optionally send a note to the recipient. This entry field displays the message text: Add note (optional).
