Using Custom Fields in Capture Task Fields

Hello,

I'm trying to use custom fields in the Capture Task Fields in a Human Task. However, the custom fields are not being recognised by the Business Process and it's just going down the 'No Match' route.

For example, I used h_custom_j for the 'Office Hours' capture task so that I could use the answer in the next stage of the process.

Is there anything else that I need to do to make these work please? I noticed that the Wiki says that it's an experimental feature, but I can't find the setting: https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php?title=Capture_Task_Fields

Many thanks,
Alisha

Hi @Alisha

Unfortunately you cannot map task based Capture Task Fields direct to custom fields. 

To achieve this, you need to add a new "Update Custom Fields" node after the task in the Business Process:

Then, you pick the custom field you are looking to update, and inject into it the answer to the Capture Task Field that has just been completed:

This should then result in the answer from the task being in the custom field you desire

Hope this works for you!
