Adding a sequential process to a stage

Version:

Control the order of events in a case by adding a sequential process to a stage. A sequential process orders related actions that lead to the resolution of a case.

For example, if your business case is to review a job application, you can create a sequential process that includes the following tasks:
  • Prepare interview questions
  • Conduct the interview
  • Prepare the candidate's assessment
Add stages to your case type. See Creating a primary stage.
  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Case types, and then click the case type that you want to open.

  2. On the Workflow tab, click Life cycle.

  3. In the Case life cycle section, hover over a stage, and then click More Add process New process .

  4. In a new text field, replace the default process label with a descriptive name.

  5. Optional:

    To change the run-time order of a process, drag the process to a different position in the stage.

  6. Click Save.

At run time, the process starts when all steps in the previous process are completed.
Provide meaningful tasks for your process by adding steps. See Adding single steps to processes.

  • Conditionally starting a process

    Create applications that flexibly adjust to dynamically changing scenarios by configuring conditions to start specific sets of actions. When processes in your case type start under specified conditions, you save time and resources because you can create one case type that is relevant in various situations, instead of providing and maintaining multiple case types.
