Automatic Time-Based Transitions

You can configure your workflow tasks to be automatically moved to the next workflow step. This may be useful in the following situations:

  • if a document needs to be to be commented on by workflow participants. If there are no comments in the specified period of time, a workflow task moves automatically to the next workflow step.
  • to automatically escalate workflow tasks that were not resolved on time. You can set a value, indicating how much idle time should elapse before Comindware Tracker automatically moves a work item to the appropriate step.
  • if you have support cases which should be moved to the End step automatically.

You can configure an automatic transition to the next step on a given weekday and time, or using the formula written in the Comindware Expression language.

To configure an automatic transition:

1. Double click the required step and click the Time-based transition tab.

2. Select the Enable auto-transition based on a time event check box.

3. If you want the transition to be performed automatically after a specified period of time, select the Move item to next step when step duration exceeds this timeout option and enter the period length.
