Instances of the selected process

Instance display

All instances of the process are displayed in the overview.

Instances are processes that have started, but have not yet completed. The processes are therefore in a wait state or processing state, or cannot be continued due to an error. These states are represented by user tasks and are visualized for the user complete with step name, phase and current status. Here you can change the responsibilities for this user task. Should, for example, a user be unable to process a task due to illness or other absence, then the process owner can remove the user assignment and make the task available to the group again or delegate the task directly to another person.

at any time to refresh the list while you are working on it.
