TASK LIBRARY

Introduction To Task Library

  • Select Process Manager | Task Library from the menu to open the Task Library blade.
  • The Task Library allows for regularly used Tasks to be created, saved and implemented into future Jobs.
  • By creating a Task Library, Users can save time when creating Jobs, as well as benefitting from the uniformity of tasks throughout numerous processes.

Viewing A Saved Task

   Note: no Tasks will be shown if no tasks have been saved to the Task Library.

  1. In the Task Library blade, select a task type from the drop-list to view all tasks of the selected type.
  2. Selecting a Task from the list will open a new blade where the Task properties are displayed. These Task properties can be edited and/or deleted.
  3. To edit a Task, double-click the Task in the Task Library to open the Task blade.
  4. Edit the Task as per your requirements, then click the Save icon .
  5. To delete the Task, click the Delete icon .

    When editing or deleting a Task that has been saved to the Task Library; if the Task that you are editing/deleting is/has been used in a Job with any status (i.e. an unreleased Template, an Active Job, or a Completed Job) then the edits/deletion will not affect that instance.

This means that the changes you make to the Saved Task will not be applied in to your Active Jobs that include that saved Task.
