Usage considerations

Offline mobile

While the process task link component is partially compatible with offline mobile, using the component to link to tasks assigned to groups and social tasks is not supported for offline mobile. However, if a user accepts a group-assigned task while online, they will be able to access it offline.

Retrieving task IDs

  • To retrieve task IDs, use the Execute Process Report Smart Service and pull from the column that returns the list of IDs.
