The User Input Task is an activity that assigns a task to be completed (using a form) to a user or a group.
To configure the User Input Task component, right-click the User Input Task and select Properties — OR — double-click the component on the designer canvas.
The General tab allows you to name and describe the node.
Enter a new name for the node, by typing it in the Name field.
To configure the activity as a quick task, see also: Creating a Quick Task.
To configure the remaining options for the User Input Task, complete the following:
It is possible to configure a form with approve or deny buttons that store a value when the form is submitted. You can also configure a User Input Task to allow inline task approval. These different task approval procedures use different settings.
Using the Submit and Button components, you can store a value when the user submits your form, such as
true for Approve or
false for Deny.
Inline task approval is only relevant to forms created with the Forms Designer, which was deprecated in 16.3. Please refer to the 16.2 Forms Designer documentation for more details about inline approval options.
The tasks you create with the User Input Task activity can be approved inline when the task is displayed on the Tempo and mobile interfaces by selecting the Allow inline task approval in Tempo checkbox on the Forms tab.
Use a custom output to save a value when the approval task is submitted inline.
