Hi All,

I have created a customWorkFlow model and created custom workflow and configured the form in "share-config-custom.xml" with my custom properties, but still it  doesn't retrive the values which I set during the workflow creation.

My custom WorkFlow Model.

The properties

  <show id="hcwf:workDescription" force="true" /> and <show id="hcwf:packageInformation" force="true" />
are retrieved with empty values, can you please let me know why these two property values are not showing in my review form?
