About the New Collaboration Task Panel
When you click Create Child Task, the New Collaboration Task panel appears, providing the following controls:
*A formatted message panel for displaying any JSF context messages.
*Collaboration Task Type—a list of all the available task types that can be used to create a collaboration task, as assigned on the Task Engine Administration page.
*Name—The name you want to assign to the collaboration task.
*Description—The description you want to assign to the task.
*Priority—The priority you want to assign to the task.
*Expiration Date—The date on which the task will be placed in expired status, as selected by an included calendar control.
*Time—A specific time of day on which the expiration will take place.
*Assignees—A list of the user, group, and role names to which the collaboration task has been assigned.
*Queue Task Immediately—A check box option that controls whether the task is started immediately upon creation or is deferred for later starting. If this check box is cleared, the collaboration task is created with a status of New, and it appears in the collaboration task list and in the Task List Management results, but will not appear in the assigned user's inbox or the task type inbox. To queue the collaboration task (causing it to appear in the assignee's inbox), set the status for the collaboration task to Active from the collaboration task list or from the Task List Management results.
*Mandatory — A check box option that controls whether the task is a mandatory task or not. If a task is specified as mandatory, the corresponding parent task can be marked as completed only when the status of all the mandatory child tasks is Completed, Error, Canceled, or Expired.
The following buttons are also included
*Pick—Opens the included modal Select Users dialog box for selecting assignees.
*Create New—Creates the new collaboration task with the specified values.
*Cancel—Discards all information and returns the user to the Collaboration tab.
