What is Task Monitoring?


The Task Monitoring is used to keep track of the progress of process instances from start to finish. It shows the path taken by the process instance, the status and time taken by the instance at each of the activities. When a process instance is created, users can keep track of that instance on where the instance has reached, who is it assigned to and the total time taken in that task using the task monitor.

How to use?



Monitor has Search Task Monitoring page for searching a particular process instance. Users can search the instance by using the date on which the process instance is created or the activity on which the instance is currently waiting or the user to whom the instance is assigned to or the role to whom the instance is assigned to.
