Application Tasks

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

Like approvals, triggered application tasks notify assigned users. Notifications are associated with environment- or application-defined user roles. Unlike approvals, application tasks can be incorporated within an application process.

The person notified for the task can indicate that it is complete by approving the step from the request's log in Approval Requests. See Approving Requests.

Create and use tasks as follows:

  1. Create application tasks in applications.

    See Creating Application Tasks.

  2. Insert a manual task step in an application process.
