When adding a Drill Down you cannot link to an existing map and must create a new map.

  • Once you have finished drafting your lower level map you must lock it for approval. Once the lower level map has been approved you can lock your higher level map for approval.

Do not lock your higher level map for approval before your lower level map has been published. 

  • When you view your Level 1 map in the library the level will be displayed in the top left corner and Activities which have a drill down attached will have a shadow behind them.
