The Signal Event action means you may 'Cancelled' and/or 'Recalled' this workflow, and which allows you to add and connect below 5 actions depending on your workflow requirement. 

You MUST tick at least one or both events(Cancelled/Recalled) to process.

  • Task Actions: Assignment Task/Claim Task
  • Send Email

Before connecting with task actions, you need have a related 'Form Page' for this action. 

Then you drag and drop the Assignment Task (or Claim Task )  to designer. Refer to Configure Assignment Task Action.

You must configure the 'Assignee' , 'Page'  and ‘Task Type’.

① Refer to the assignee guide of Configure Assignment Editor

② The form page can be defined as required. E.g. You need some more notes once it's recalled or terminated.

③ Normally you need to change the task type to 'Complete' if no further action is required. Or you can set more task actions before it goes to applicant's page.

Important Note: There will be no workflow status update after the 'Signal Event'.  The applicant/submitter can modify and resubmit this form until the task action(s) is completed.

Connect with task action(s) with arrow and it completes.
