A Data Trigger is a type of Task Trigger that is fired when an event occurs in the system.


    E.g. Submission is completed.

    E.g. Reviewers are assigned to submissions.


Any Tasks that are configured with a Data Trigger will be executed when the relevant event has happened in the system.


When a Data Trigger is fired, details of the objects associated with the event are passed to the Task.  These provide a Task with Context and are used when the Task's Steps are executed.


    E.g. If Submission 0034 is completed, details of Submission 0034 are passed to the Task when the data trigger is fired.


The following types of Data Trigger are currently available:
