An assigned Task

Task Form

The assigned Task displays in the Form tab. The Form tab displays by default when an assigned Task is opened. The Form tab displays information differently depending on whether ProcessMaker software is involved in the task's activity:

  • Forms in which ProcessMaker software is involved with the activity: The Form tab displays an interactive ProcessMaker Screen, which is a Form-type Screen. Form-type ProcessMaker Screens allow Request participants to enter, review, and/or make decisions based on information in the form. Below is an example of a Task in which ProcessMaker software is involved with the activity.

  • Forms in which ProcessMaker software is not involved with the activity: The Form tab displays a ProcessMaker Screen that only displays a message. This is a Display-type Screen that allows the Task assignee to do a manual task in which ProcessMaker software is not directly involved, such as moving inventory containers. When the manual Task is complete, the Task assignee clicks the Complete Task button. Below is an example of a Task in which ProcessMaker software is not involved with the activity.

Editable Task Data

Your user account or group membership must have the "Requests: Edit Task Data" permission to edit Task data unless your user account has the Make this user a Super Admin setting selected.

See the Request permissions or ask your ProcessMaker Administrator for assistance.

The Data tab displays in JSON format the data a previous participant of this Request entered. Values in the Data tab can be changed from those entered by the previous Request participant.

Follow these steps to edit and save the values from those entered by a previous Request participant:
