Adding Task Templates to a Change Template
Task templates can be related to a change template by specifying the ID of each task template in the
Task Templates column. Separate the IDs of the task templates with a line break.
Linking Task Templates to Form a Workflow
When multiple task templates are related to a change template, these task templates can be linked together into a workflow. This is done using the
Workflow column. In this column, the predecessor => successor links can be defined.
The following example shows how a workflow can be defined from four task templates. The IDs of these four task templates are 1 through 4. In this example, the workflow starts with task template #1. This first task template has two successors. These are task templates #2 and #3. Task templates #2 and #3 are the predecessors of task template #4, which is the final step of the workflow.
1 => 2 1 => 3 2 => 4 3 => 4
Each predecessor => successor link needs to be separated by a line break.
