Application Manual Tasks

A manual task is a mechanism used to interrupt an application process until some manual intervention is performed. A task-interrupted process will remain suspended until the targeted user or users respond. Typically, manual tasks are removed after the process has been tested or automated.

Similar to approvals, triggered tasks alert targeted users. Alerts are associated with environment- or application-defined user roles. Affected users can respond—approve—by using the Work Items pane (see Work Items). Unlike approvals, manual tasks can be incorporated within an application process.
