Suspend Node Options

Good afternoon,

We are currently using a suspend node to suspend the BPM for a certain number of hours before it automatically continues on with the process.

Currently, we are using an expiry timer to set the suspend period. Instead of using the "Expire period" timer, can we configure this node to suspend until a certain time in the day? Ie for the BPM to be suspended until 5pm?

Regards,
Aykut

Not possible with current functionality. May I ask why (what requirement) to use the suspend node? Just trying to see how and for what purpose you are using it and maybe offer a better solution (if there is any).

Thank you @Victor

We have scenarios where we would like to automatically email or change status at the start of the day or at close of business. We had this configured where currently the node suspends the process for a day - this was set at 8hours - before it continues on to email or change status.

However, the suspend node now depends on the completion of the previous node. While this was meant to be suspend until the close of business, it suspends for 8 hours (business hours) from the time the previous node was completed. Therefore, the BPM is usually suspended until midday the next day.

We would really like to have this configured so that it can do certain task at precise times. Looking at the different tasks under this node, there is an "await expiry" with "Expiry Date/Time" as an option, would this not work?

Regards,
Aykut

You may try the nodes below provided the 'previous node' you refer to is completed before 17:00 on any given day (else you may need some decision nodes added)
