Adding Start and Completion Deadlines and Alarms

Adding Start and Completion Deadlines and Alarms

You can set deadlines for when a task must start and when a task must complete.
If desired, you can set deadlines for when a task must start and when a task must complete. For example, if a task must start within three hours of being created, you can set a start deadline and add an escalation action to notify the potential owners that no one has started the task. The notification is sent to all potential owners.
You can add multiple start and completion deadlines for a task. For details on the definition of start and completion, see About Task Deadlines and Escalations.
Creating a Start (or Completion) Deadline for a Task:
  1. In the Outline view, select a people activity that has a task (not a notification).
  2. Select the people activity's task.
  3. In the task Properties view, select the Deadlines tab, and select
    Add
    .
  4. In the
    Deadline Specification
    dialog, select the deadline type: Start or
    Completion
    . A start deadline indicates when a task must be started by. A completion deadline indicates when a task must be completed by.
  5. Select an Alarm Type: Deadline or Duration. You can fill in the expression later.
  6. Select one of the escalation types to occur when the deadline occurs:
    • inline notification
    • local notification
    • reassignment
    • process invoke
    • send email
  7. In the table, click (
    ...
    ) in the
    Expression
    column to create a deadline or duration value that conforms to the type selected.
  8. To complete the details for the escalation, see Selecting an Escalation Action to Occur When a Task Deadline is Triggered.
  9. Add more start and completion deadlines as desired.
Tips:
  • The start time begins when the task is created; that is, when the BPEL process executes the People activity.
  • An example of a duration of six hours is
    PT6H
    . For more examples on how to express deadlines or durations, refer to the
    Process Developer Online Help
    .
  • If desired, add a condition to the expression.
  • On the
    Deadlines
    tab of a task, select a deadline and then select
    Go To
    to view the properties of the deadline.
