The Work Party is used for assigning the job to a role or specific user when the process reaches a Human Task. One Work Party can be comprised of list of users or different role groups..

Purpose

Process designer uses Work Party assignments to assign jobs, when the process flow reaches a human node task. A Work Party is like department and members are same as workers in that department. User can create different Work Party as well as members in each Work Party, and then user can bring that Work Party to create lanes in the process.


In Process Designer, user can specify different lanes to mark the activities owned by different sections. So user must create lanes before dragging the nodes to develop a process. Each node in a process needs to belong to a specific lane. User must also set name of that lane. When any Lane has a Human Task, the Human Task by default will be assigned to the Work Party associated with that lane. User can also configure it to assign human node task to specific work party or specific user in another work party.
