Enabling back-to-back assignments

At any time, one work item might have multiple open assignments and multiple flow executions in process. If a user completes an assignment for work item W-22534 and others exist, it is usually natural and productive for that user to work next on other assignments for the same work item (or for the cover) if there are any.

If your application might produce such multiple open assignments, consider whether they can be performed by the same operators. To promote such back-to-back assignments, select these fields on the Action tab of the Flow Action form :

  • After this action Look for an assignment to perform?
  • If not found, look in other flows on this work object?
  • If not found, look in flows on the cover object?

When enabled, this searching occurs automatically upon the completion of the flow action, so Get Next Work processing does not occur.
