This Activity Type enables you to configure which Form will be the default form within the process, and enables new forms to be attached. In addition to the common properties tabs that appear for all Timeline activities, the configuration settings below are unique to this Activity Type.
Form Options Tab
You may use the Object Picker to select a form definition to be attached to the process.
Checking this option will make the selected Form the default form for this Timeline Instance.
This option will create the Form instance with a version of 1. Normally the version is set to a special value to indicate that the form has never been saved by a user which prevents it from showing up on Knowledge Views, and also applies the default data to the Form fields. Checking this option will cause the form instance to NOT use default data.
You shouldn't use this option unless you know that your application specifically requires this behavior.
Specifies the conditions under which a new instance of the form definition is created and then attached to the process. The following options are available:
- Only if the Form doesn't already exist in the package: A new instance of the Form will be created only if there is no existing instance.
- Never add a new Form instance: No new Form instance will be added.
- Every time the task runs: Add a new Form instance for every iteration of this task.
Assigns a group name to the added form instance.
