The Customs Action tab allows users to set the Delayed Send and Expiration Date by custom code in a specified class. You can use custom code to have a work item perform certain actions or tasks before sending the work item to the next activity. Refer to the section "Customizing Send Action Class," found in the Process Modeling guide for detailed instructions on how to create a custom code.

To set the Delayed Send and Expiration period by custom code:

  1. Enter the fully qualified class name in the Send Action Class field.
    1. The Send Action Class field is only available for the following EPX activities: Manual, Automatic, Anonymous, Iteration, Work Item Purge, and Decision Point. This would mean that the Send Action Class field can function independently and can be used without the Dynamic Date or Date Expiration feature.
    The Send Action Class field on the Custom Action tab or the Work Item Key field on the Details and Expiration tabs must have valid entries if Delayed Send or Dynamic Date is selected.
  2. Specify additional property keys and values that you want to pass to the custom code identified by the Send Action Class or the Custom Expiration Handler, if one has been installed. You can add an entry to the list by right-clicking anywhere in the key-value region and then clicking Add.
  3. Type in the name and value of the activity in the Activity Property window.
  4. Save the data entered and proceed to another tab by clicking Apply. Clicking OK will also save the data entered and exit the Command Line BIC editor. To cancel saving the data entered, click Cancel.

The count of pattern letters determines the format.

Presentation Usage
(Text) If the count of pattern letters is 4 or more, use the full form. If the count is less than 4 pattern letters, use short or abbreviated form if one exists.
(Number) Represents the minimum number of digits. Shorter numbers are zero-padded to this amount. Year is handled specially; that is, if the count of y is 2, the year will be truncated to 2 digits.
(Text & Number) M is the only format field that can be number or text. If the count of M is 1 or 2 it is to be read as a number. If the count of M is 3 it is read as an abbreviated month name. If the count of M is 4 it shows the full month name.
