For these u can try using ADHOC workflow process


Adhoc Workflow Wizard provides the ability for an end-user to build and initiate custom workflow processes. Each workflow process potentially produces work items which are displayed in the Universal Worklist (UWL). The end-user can:

Create processes consisting of a number of tasks that persist until done

Assign individual tasks to separate users

As a process initiator, your email address must be properly configured in your User Management Engine (UME) data.

Procedure For Standalone Processes:

To access the Adhoc Workflow from UWL:

Goto Home  Work

1.From the portal screen, under Home tab, choose Work.

2.To start the workflow creation process, choose Create Task.

3.In Task Type, use the drop list to select Task.

4.In Title, enter a unique topic. Up to 100 characters are allowed. It is a mandatory field.

5.Enter the overall workflow description in the Description field.

6.Select the workflow Priority. This affects the urgency of the tasks that will be generated by the workflow.

7.Select the Due date.

8.In Assigned To, choose the Select button.

The Select Users, Groups, or Roles iView appear.

9.Enter the name or partial name of the user, group, or role you wish to assign the task. Wildcards * are not necessary.

10.Choose the Search button. A list of matching results will appear.

11.Select the desired users, groups, or roles you which to assign.

12.Select the icon. The selections will appear on the Current Selection table.

13.Choose OK and you will return to the Adhoc workflow wizard.

14.Choose the More Options button.

15.Select Allow Assignees To Decline Task and Separate Task for Each Assignee checkboxes.

16.In the Trackers field, select and assign users that will track each step and give final approval.

17.In Notification, use the drop list menu to select On Updates, Completion, and if Overdue.

18.Add an attachment by choosing Edit Attachments.

19.Choose the Browse button and find a file on your hard drive.

20.Choose Upload.

The files you have added will appear below and choose Close.

21.Choose Send.

Create a Task List

Subtasks create a series of steps that need to be completed before the process can continue.

To create a Task List:

Home  Work

1.Choose Create Task button.

2.Choose Task List from the drop list.

3.In Title, enter a unique topic. Up to 100 characters are allowed. It is a mandatory field.

4.Enter a task Priority, Due date and Description.

5.Select the Add Task button.

6.Enter values in the form.

7.Select the Save button.

The work items are displayed in the UWL screens of the users to whom the work items have been assigned.

8.More task can be added into the task list by repeatedly going through Step 5 to Step 7.

Choose Send.


The approvers/recipients see the workflow item in their task list.
