Tasks


There are two types of Tasks:

  • Milestone tasks: can be used to record key milestones which are available to view in the Stakeholder Portal.
  • Child tasks: can be used to record sub-tasks and trigger automated actions. These are not available to view in the Stakeholder Portal.

Adding a Milestone Task

  6. Stakeholder’s Description: Provide a description of the task to your Stakeholders, which will be visible within their portal / mobile app

  8. When this task completes:
    1. Update matter state to “select matter state” when this task is completed : Choose to change the state of the matter, once the task is completed. This also applies when the task is completed via an external user returning an E-Signature or Form Widget.
Once a milestone task has been added, you can then define any traffic light conditions and whether the task should be conditional.

      If a form widget is sent to a Stakeholder, once completed the associated form widget will be ticked off your workflow with a date / time audit trail of who completed it.
    6. Create invoice: Generates an invoice within the workflow
