For example, you can render Correspondence Management tasks and
complete a task involving CM without leaving LiveCycle Workspace.

the email message or reply with the action as the first line of
the reply message.
Open forms that were routed to a user or to a group queue
to review, approve, or provide more information.
When users open their task, they can add comments to it and
view the comments that other reviewers added. Users can also see
which action other users selected when they submitted their task.

or active processes that the user initiated or participated in.
Have custom searches and filters based on process variables.

You can complete an Assign Multiple Tasks operation
before all the generated tasks are completed. This feature is useful
when a decision can be made about a review without receiving a response
from every reviewer. For example, the acceptance of a proposal requires
a majority of approvals from committee members. You can complete
the Assign Multiple Tasks operation immediately after more than
50% of the tasks are completed when the Approve action is selected.
Collection data and XPath functions
The information that is submitted
for each task of an Assign Multiple Tasks operation is saved in
a collection variable called Task Result Collection. XPath functions
can be used to evaluate the results. For example, you can determine how
many people selected a specific action or the percentage of people
who submitted the action. These functions are useful when assessing
the results of document reviews that occur in series.
Multiple user tasks
The User service provides the new Assign Multiple
Tasks operation for assigning tasks to several users simultaneously.
It allows process developers to construct parallel task assignments
based on a list of users or a group.
The Assign Multiple
Tasks operation is useful when you need several people to provide
similar information. For example, at the end of each fiscal quarter,
a process assigns a task to the vice president of each geographical
sales group of your organization. To complete their task, each vice
president attaches their quarterly sales report and then submits
the task. The process retrieves each attachment from the collection
of task results and sends them to the senior vice president of sales.
operation is also useful when you require several people to review
and approve the same information (document review-and-approval processes).
