Timers

Hi,

I'm working with Bizagi Studio and i would like to use timers.

In my scenario i would like to have a timer attached to an activity that when it expires (and the task who is attached is not yet done) changes the execution flow and executes another activity.

I have read the following page: http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?set_tasks_and_timers_duration.htm

And used the following "On-Enter" rule: Me.TimerEventDuration= CHelper.resolveVocabulary(Me,"Duration");

where Duration is a constant in the vocabulary set for experimental test at 3 minutes.

It does not work. I have also tried to use an event xor split with a timer in a branch and a task in the other one branch. It works but whenever i add another task (that represent the change of the execution flow) after the timer it does not work anymore.

Thanks, regards,

Gianluca

Dear Gianluca,

After you have applied these changes, you need to restart the project scheduler. Please open the management console application and restart the service. For further information: http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?manage_scheduled_jobs.htm

You may check alarms which generate warnings for different people when a Task is about to expire, expires or has expired.For further information: http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?defining_alarms.htm
