Creating task template details
Modified on Thu, 22 Jun 2023 at 03:36 PM
This article deals with the principles behind creating task templates in Automation manager.
This article looks at the Details section that make up the first and last sections of the task template, as explained in the previous article.
The Details section: Part 1
In Automation Manager, go to:
2. Task template
You will be presented with a blank task template which should be completed as described below.
1. Give the task a meaningful name and it will appear as the task name in the task itself.
2. The description is often used to give the end user instructions on how to perform the task.
3. The code is critical in the Automation manager set up. Unlike the name, it has to be unique, as these codes are key to identifying the task and have a significant role in the export/import of task templates.
You are free to enter your own coding convention. However, if you leave the code empty, Automation manager will take the Process code that you have set on the task and add the next available number in the sequence.
4. Select the appropriate Task type for the template. For example, Manual Workflow Task, SAP account reconciliation or eBS submit request. This will then change the task parameters that appear, which you can read more about here.
The Details section: Part 2
The second part of the details section is found after the Task parameter sections.
This final part of creating a task template links the template to the correct process, schedule and companies.
