User task list
This page explains what a user can see and do about tasks in the Bonita User Application.
Users can view lists of tasks assigned to their team, assign a task to themselves, view lists of tasks assigned to them inside a team, work on the tasks, view the "Done" tasks on different processes, and release tasks (depending on their status).
Starting with Bonita 7.3, users benefit from a configurable task list, to manage tasks involving human actors from all processes in a more efficient fashion. This page is also made available as a custom page in Bonita Administrator Application > "Resources" tab, to be used in any application, for any user-type profile.
Here are the values of the user task list:
Default Master/Detail design pattern, to view list and form in the same screen
Panel expand feature, to display wide forms in a large modal window
List settings: number of tasks in a page, choice of columns, columns ordering
Easy access to case information, one tab away from the form. This case information is the case overview page, that the development team can customize
Easy access to case comments, also one tab away from the form or case information
Alternate "full width" list, with task information displayed in a large modal window
This list also leverages two legacy features (prior to Bonita 7.3.0):
Dynamic task display name, for efficient task identification (insert business values in task name)
Word-based search, for efficient task name search (search for any word in the task name)
The task list also contains a Done tasks filter, for the user to check if the task has been completed properly.
Since Bonita 7.3.0, creating subtasks is no longer possible. However, if subtasks have been created in a process instance in an old Bonita version, and if the Bonita Platform has been migrated to a later version while the case was open, then the subtasks will still be visible to the users assigned, and users will still be able to complete them.
