Daniel Dekel Posted July 31, 2018 Share Posted July 31, 2018 I wanted to tell you about the new features being released to the Activity View. Based on an experimental flag ( experimental.feature.bpm.allowcustomtaskfields ) the new view will be available. Apart from the obvious UI change, there are several interesting new things: 1. Less clicks based on the situation: If the Activity doesn't require reason, time spent and other outcomes details, the outcomes will be displayed straight away as you open it instead of showing a complete button and then displaying the outcomes. * Activity view mode when no further input is needed * Activity view mode when input is needed 2. Custom Fields: By enabling the experimental flag, the BPM will allow you to add custom fields for a task to be presented when completing the task or a specific set of fields when selecting a particular outcome. The values can then be used in the BPM. Custom fields are very much like the ones in the Progressive Capture. * Outcome RAISE PROBLEM is selected. * Further questions are presented to the user 3. Enforced amending in specific situations: There are three basic types of Tasks (or Activities); Manual Activity - Created by the user in the Collaboration Core. This one is fully editable and remains mostly as it was before. Outcomes - by default will not allow editing and only one outcome "Done" will be used. Use Templates to customize the outcomes. BPM Task - This one is created by the BPM and can only re-assign and change the dates. BPM Approval - This one is also created by the BPM and it will not allow editing, only complete. 4. Reason and Time Spent: Time Spent can be hidden in the Template configuration. The Chargeable option will also be hidden if no time spent is displayed. If the Reason is not required for the specific selected Outcome, it will not be displayed. 5. Material Design Style and Layout change New style has been applied based on Material Design. The Action buttons were moved from the bottom of the popup to the right hand side. This is because of several issues we had with unknown number of outcomes. That lead to problems in the layout and after a few attempts to solve this issue we decided to use a vertical layout for the buttons. NOTES: * The Mobile App does not support yet Custom Fields. Therefore when opening an activity that has custom fields, it will not allow completing. Hope you like these changes and please let us know what do you think. We still have time to amend things before we remove the experimental flag. Thanks, Daniel. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
