  Standard Task TS17900102: Form Is Edited Again by Author


You can use this standard task to return a form to a user to edit another time. With this standard task, the user receives a returned form that he or she has already edited. This standard task is triggered in the following conditions:

  • When a user of the form chooses the Back to Author function in the form application

  • If the workflow is modeled according to the related workflow step for the processing status (PROCSTATE) BACK.

This standard task generally corresponds to the Edit Form standard task. The differences are:

  • The values of the processing statuses that are output are different (see below).

  • The Back to Author function is not available in the form application.

End of the note.
  • Processing Status (PROCSTATE) – Optional

    You can use this element to specify that the processing status is to be transferred from the workflow step to the workflow container once the work item is completed (workflow binding <- Form Is Edited Again by Author step). If the processing status is known in the workflow container, you can process the other workflow steps in accordance with the processing status.

    The processing status can have the following value:

    • RESENT

      The work item was processed successfully. The user has chosen the Send function in the Review and Send view of the form application.

      Note Note

      Note that you control the subsequent workflow steps, such as those for approving the form, on the basis of the Sent Back processing status. This is necessary so that you can differentiate subsequent process steps from those resulting from the first editing.

      End of the note.
