Set the task priority based on the parent workflow task/doc priority

You might need to set the task priority based on the parent item priority. Use the following identifiers in your expressions as task priorities:

Value

ID

Low priority

cmw.taskPriority.low

Medium priority

cmw.taskPriority.medium

High priority

cmw.taskPriority.high

Workflow tasks/docs don't have a default system field for priority. Create a new field of the List of Values type intended for setting the priority of an item. For example, create the Request Priority (ID: Request_Priority) field and drag it to the form of a workflow task. Populate the list with the following values:

Value

ID

Low

Request_Priority.values.Low

Medium

Request_Priority.values.Medium

High

Request_Priority.values.High

Perform the following steps to set the child task’s priority based on the parent item’s priority:

1. Open a workspace, open an application inside a workspace.
2. Click Workflow and double click a required step.
3. In the window that appears, in the Actions group click Responsible Persons.
4. Select the Assign tasks and pre-populate task fields check box and expand Task Settings.
5. Set the following rule for priority:

If ($parent->Request_Priority == ID("Request_Priority.values.Low"),

ID ("cmw.taskPriority.low"),

If ($parent->Request_Priority == ID("Request_Priority.values.Medium"),

ID ("cmw.taskPriority.medium"),

ID ("cmw.taskPriority.high")

)

)

To check how it works, create a new workflow task and move it through workflow. On the required step the child task will be created with the priority set according to the predefined rule.
