Form for a Task

The Form tab displays by default when an assigned Task is opened. The Form tab displays information differently depending on whether the task is Form Task or a Manual Task.

  • Form Tasks: The Form tab displays an interactive Screen, which is a Form-type Screen. Form-type Screens allow Request participants to enter, review, and/or make decisions based on information in the form.

  • Manual Tasks: The Form tab displays a Screen that only displays a message. This is a Display-type Screen that allows the Task assignee to do a manual task, such as moving inventory containers. When the manual Task is complete, the Task assignee clicks the Complete Task button.

If a Screen is not specified in a Form Task element, the following placeholder Screen displays to that Task assignee. Click the Continue button to go to the next step.

The placeholder Screen allows the Task assignee to continue the Request without causing it to pause indefinitely. This functionality also allows Process Designers to place the basic Process objects into a Process model and then evaluate it during development.
