Errors can occur when saving a process for two reasons. The first is when an email action,
which has been configured for a data group action, has been connected to a
data group event handler, which in turn was configured for another
data group. The second cause could be if an application does not exist
in the portal, and its data groups are referenced by the process. The
warning in the Hints area will remain until the next time the
process is saved. More details about a hint will appear when you move
the mouse over an entry.
