Tasks are one of the most central concepts in Workflow . A task is a piece of work that can be assigned to a specific person. Tasks can be any step in a business flow that requires human interaction from approve and reject, review and close, to installing and configuring a piece of hardware. The Dialog Workflow component is the main source of tasks in Workflow . Part of the function of the Dialog Workflow component is to create tasks. A Dialog Workflow component can create a task in any of the following places: Process Manager, SharePoint, Altiris Help Desk 6.5, and the default task manager (an internal task manager for workflow processes). These options are available in the Assignments tab of the Dialog Workflow editor. The two most common places the Dialog Workflow component creates tasks is DefaultTaskSource and ProcessManagerTaskSource.
In addition to creating tasks, the Dialog Workflow component can also assign tasks to individuals. This means that the task appears in the specific task list of the assigned person.
