Processes and Tasks With and Without an Object Reference
Processes in yuuvis® RAD client show work processes. A process consists of a sequence of interrelated activities and work items. Tasks to be completed can be assigned or forwarded to yuuvis® RAD client users via processes.
Processes are provided by the administrator. The administrator can configure processes for specific tasks, for example, for follow-up inquiry or release processes for follow-ups. You require the relevant permissions to start processes and edit work items.
In yuuvis® RAD, a distinction is made between processes with an object reference and processes without an object reference:
Processes with an object reference
are processes that refer to a specific business object, for example, a document or a folder. The relevant object is stored in the process file when the process is started.
You can start processes with an object reference via the Actions menu of a selected object.
Processes without an object reference
are processes that do not refer to a specific business object, for example, vacation requests. You can start processes without an object reference via the Start process icon on the yuuvis® RAD bar. Depending on the type of process without an object reference, you can add documents and links to business objects of the process file at a later stage.
Messages related to tasks from processes are shown in the recipient's inbox (see Inbox).
