To create a new personal subflow:

  1. In the Navigator pane, right-click the Personal Subflows folder and click New... in the shortcut menu. Alternatively, you can click on the Subflows folder to select it, and then click the New button on the toolbar or click New... in the Navigator menu.

Note: Manual Activities are not available in personal subflows.

  1. Add activities, including Anonymous Activities, to the personal subflow as required. A personal subflow must contain one or more Anonymous Activities.

Note: Using Automatic Activities between Anonymous Activities in a personal subflow may delay the advancement of the work item to the next Anonymous Activity in that personal subflow.

When doing this, TaskManager displays a message indicating that the work item is being processed by an Automatic Activity, which might take some time. By default, TaskManager checks every 10 seconds to see if the work item is present at the next Anonymous Activity yet. This polling interval is configurable via the config.properties file, by changing the value of the taskmanager.pwiv.event.pollingInterval property (this file is found in <EPX>\bin). By reducing this value, you can shorten the polling interval.

  1. To connect these activities, add Transitions and Or Join Activities as needed. Define the end of the personal subflow by placing an Exit Point Activity on the flow canvas and connecting the final activity to it with a Transition.

Important: When using DPA in a personal subflow, work items must be re-assigned to a dummy user and subsequently re-assigned to another user to retain their current position in the personal subflow. As a standard, it is recommended to always start with an Anonymous activity designated as a Welcome page and end with another Anonymous activity as a Finish page before the Exit point.
