Human Task checklist Variable Picker...

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I must be going crazy - in the Variable Picker against a branch out of the Decision Node from a Human Task, what Variable am I to use to pick up the list of items checked in the Checklist?

I have a parellel process that will eventually create new tickets depending on what has been ticked in the Human Task Checklist.

Thanks,

Samuel

@samwooI would have thought it would be custom expression > (assuming connection a decision node straight onto the task) last node outcome CONTAINS "Text from checklist"

Hi @Dan Munns,

I thought it may have been "Outcome" but I just wanted to check first as the Wiki hadn't provided any info :'(

Thank you,

Samuel

@samwoo actually I may have just had a brain wave.

I believe OUTCOME is the button selected to close the task

You will need custom expression> (variable selector) Tasks->{Task Name}->Completion Details -> CONTAINS  "Text from checklist"

@Dan Munns,

Unfortunately this has not worked.

It appears the Checklist is used to track the % completion of a Task, and not contribute to the Completion Details of the task.

Now i'm not sure how to progress with this at all in my case... Tech Support identfify what Applications a Leaver has access to half way through the Manual Leaver process, and since we cannot have a form half way through the leaver process and he Task Checklist doesn't return any Outcome Details I am at a lost at how to automate the creation of tickets / emails based on the Applications the leaver has.

Does anyone have any ideas? (remembering that these Applications are identified half way through this process, AFTER the Leaver has been confirmed)

Thanks,

Samuel

Hi Samuel,

The checklist on an Activity was a very early feature of the activities and was really seen as a simple list of actions that needed to be done in order to complete the task. Once all are checked off the outcome is set to being completed. 

You mention not having a ''form'' half way through a process.  I'm assuming that you are referring to triggering a progressive capture form after a request has been raised?  This has been considered before and something that we still may look at implementing. 

In the meantime I'll continue to think of alternatives for you that you can use now.

This was the post we raised about the ability to trigger a progressive capture from an activity to capture more infomation. In our case we want to use this to gather more information from the analyst before triggering an integration node.

Cheers
