A Task defines a set of actions that are automatically executed by Flame.
Each Task is made up of a number of Task Steps that carry out individual actions.
A Task is executed whenever a Task Trigger has been activated.
When a Task has been executed, a Task Job is created with the results of the task.
When a Task is executed it is ran as if the creator of the Task was carrying out the steps manually. See Task Security.
Tasks can be accessed from the Settings dashboard.
The Tasks grid shows all the tasks in the project
A Task can be added from the Tasks grid by clicking on Add New Task.
Adding a new Task
This will display a panel prompting for the following:
|Name||A unique name for the task. This should a descriptive name to help users understand what the task does.|
NOTE: Only Alpha Numeric characters are allowed
|Description||A long description for the task.|
This should be as descriptive as possible, including details of the steps that the task carries out.
E.g. Send an invite email to reviewers on assignment and then send a chase email 4 days later.
