Performing a task

Iterop Play allows you to perform the tasks assigned to you.

Depending on how the process is configured, you may receive an email notification that you have a task to complete.

A task is completed by following the following steps:

  1. Click on the “Tasks” tab located in the left menu
  2. Choose the task you have to perform
  3. On the right side of the screen, the following window opens:Compléter une tâche
  4. This is the data needed to complete your task:
    • On the left, the input data 1️⃣ corresponds to the information that is useful for the completion of your task. There may be no input data, depending on the process configuration.
    • On the right, the form 2️⃣ contains the information you need to fill in in order to complete the task. There may also be no information to be entered.
  5. Select “finalize task” 3️⃣ when you are finished. You’re moving the process forward.

Fill out a form

When you perform a task, you must fill out forms to complete the data needed to move the process forward.

Here is a sample form:

To complete the forms, you must respect the different formats requested. When you get to the form window, all fields are greyed out and update as you complete the data.

Grey fields 4️⃣: you have not yet completed the field.

Fields displayed in green 2️⃣: the data you have entered corresponds to the type of data requested.

Required fields 3️⃣: they are followed by an asterisk. You will not be able to complete your task if you do not fill in the required fields.

Fields displayed in red 1️⃣: The input field is displayed in red when you do not enter the correct data format requested or the field is empty but the data is mandatory. You will not be able to complete your task if the field remains red.

Example: write a name instead of a phone number.

Once you have entered all the data, click on “finalize task“.

Make sure that all the fields in the form are green or grey so that you can complete your task.

Finish a task later

It is possible to complete a task later while you are completing the data, which means that the task remains assigned to you and no other user can complete it until you release it. The data, partially or totally entered, will be saved, and you will be able to retrieve them the next time you consult this task.

Example: You need to send a document as an attachment and you have not had time to scan it. In order to prevent another user from completing the task at the same time, press the “finish later” button for the time it takes to scan the document and then return to your “Pending” task manager to finalize the task.

  1. Complete all or part of the requested data
  2. Click on “Terminate later” 1️⃣ to move the task to the “Pending” tab.

When you click “Finish later”, users associated with this task will no longer be able to complete the task. The task is assigned to you.

Pending tasks appear in the “Pending” tab at the top of the page. This tab groups all tasks that have been set as “Terminate later” or that you need to finalize. You are the only one assigned to the tasks located in the “Pending” tab.

Dropping a task

  1. Select your task in the tab “Pending“”
  2. Select the task you wish to abort
  3. In the task form screen, click on “Abandon the task” so that the process can resume and another user can take over.

If any data had been saved, it will be deleted when you exit the task.
