Key Points About Collaboration Tasks
Both Software AG Designer and Task Engine provide a set of design-time and run-time functions that allow you to create, modify, assign, and complete collaborative task-based workflows when required.
A key portion of the collaborative workflow feature enables you to quickly create one or more collaboration tasks that can be assigned to others users, so that those users can collaborate in completing the parent task. These collaboration tasks exist within a unique collaboration process model that is created when the first collaboration task is created. It is also possible to create tasks for business processes that will dynamically generate and assign one or more collaboration tasks automatically, based on task business data.
A number of general task capabilities are also available to enhance the collaborative work environment, including:
*Comments—By default, tasks provide the ability for users to enter, modify, and view free-form comments within the task they are working on.
*Attachments—By default, tasks provide the ability for users to add or delete attachments.
*Data sharing—You can specify if business data and other task information is to be shared among collaborative users.
