A task is an activity that must be completed, such as reviewing an edited record, reviewing a merge proposal, or approving a new record. A workflow consists of multiple tasks linked together.
Tasks are generated by review processes. A review process is an automated business process. When a user adds, edits, merges, or unmerges records, the action can initiate a review process. A review process ensures that business managers or data stewards review and ultimately approve the data before it becomes master data.
A task includes the task details and the associated record that requires review. Tasks require you to take an action, such as accepting or rejecting edits to a record, merging records, or unmerging records. You can work on a task by claiming the task. You can manage tasks by performing task administration actions, such as assigning, releasing, or editing tasks. You can also manage tasks by taking an actions, such as accepting or rejecting.
If you require different task types, triggers, or workflows, contact your MDM administrator. The MDM administrator can edit your task configurations.
