Assign a task to several users in parallel

In the Best practices, there is the statement:

What to check in Activities

•Do not diagram multiple instances of the same task to represent multiple performers. Just diagram one task in one area. Define the multiple performers as Allocation Conditions in the documentation and allocation rules.

On the allocation rules page, I didn't find how I can assign a task to several users and wait when all users perform the task and them push the process further.

How to configure a task allocation for several users in parallel?

Thanks

Dear Vladimir,

First off, the multiple parallel instances of the task need to be created, so when they are completed the process can move forward. This is done by the implementation of a Multiple Parallel Sub-process.

The following article contains an example on how to achieve this:

http://help.bizagi.com/bpm-suite/en/index.html?basic_configuration_for_multiple.htm

Once the instances have been created, the work allocation comes in place. There you can follow all possibilities explained in the article that you shared (http://help.bizagi.com/bpm-suite/en/index.html?work_allocation.htm), depending on your specific needs.

Dear Oswaldo,

I put the wrong link to the best practices. Here is the correct one.

http://help.bizagi.com/bpm-suite/en/index.html?what_to_avoid_when_process_model.htm

But why a multiple sub-process is better than parallel activities? And there is no mention that activity should be converted to sub-process.

Somebody needs to check the Best practices. Because exactly this suggestion "Do not diagram multiple instances of the same task to represent multiple performers. Just diagram one task in one area. Define the multiple performers as Allocation Conditions in the documentation and allocation rules." mislead me to the wrong way and I lost a week figuring out why it doesn't work as it said in the Best practices.

Thank you for your help.
