Excel based import in workflow doesn’t indicate the fields which are mandatory, editable, viewable at step level.

Workflow excel based import doesn’t indicate the fields which are mandatory/required at step level, what are editable for user and what are viewable. It would be good if there can be a color coding for the user to know upfront at export that what all attribute they can edit in that step via the excel.

    As per design the excel import export template marks the mandatory field based on spec definition only. At this moment there is no further change planned in this feature. Modifying this to introduce workflow level permission can also involve a lot of performance degradation. Incase we see more interest from user community we will revisit this.
