A Task Status workflow is special. Rather than apply to an item, such as a scene or an asset, it applies to the task of another workflow. In fact, it provides statuses for that task.
Let's use the simple asset workflow Background as an example. Background has two process: Layout and Colouring.
If we want to have five possible statuses for the process; Layout, Pending, In Progress, Completed, Rejected and Approved, we need to create a task status workflow.
- In the main menu, select Project Settings.
The Project Settings tab opens.
- Select the Workflows option.
The Workflows tab opens.
- Click Add.
The Add New Workflow dialog box opens.
- In the Name field, enter the name of the new workflow.
- In the Description field, type the workflow description.
- In the Search Type drop-down menu, select Task (sthpw/task).
- In the Colour field, use the colour picker widget to select an identification colour.
- Click Select to confirm the colour selection.
- We recommend that you leave the Autocreate Tasks option enabled. This means that when items are created using this workflow, the tasks will be created automatically.
- Click Add to create the workflow.
- In the Workflows list, select the new Task Status workflow.
The workflow appears in the editor.
- Click on the Create First Node icon to create the first node
- Right-click on the node and select Rename Node.
- Type the new name.
- Press Enter to valide the name.
- Click on the Save icon to save the changes. Note that the Save icon has an orange glow whenever a change has been made to a workflow.
