Able to View Sponsor Task before the Task is complete

When we are executing an activity and are in the middle of Sponsor Task and there is a Exit Validation Error. Now, if we want to see what components are ran in that task, we can't because there is no View Option, when the Task is in progress.
FYI : If the Task is Partner Task, we have the View Option

How will this idea be used?

This feature, would help in analysis the issue, even when there is exit validation error in a sponsor task.

Currently, if there is a exit validation error in a sponsor task, there is no way to see what ran in that task until that point.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for the response.

    But, for Sponsor Task, admin is not able to cancel and view. It is coming only for Partner Tasks.

    Screenshots for your reference:


    Sponsor Task - There is no view, when the task is not completed.



    Partner Task - There is view

    If you cancel and save the task, then you should be able to see the responses in the sponsor task. The admin should be able to see the responses in the view mode.
