Joget DX 8 Stable Released
The stable release for Joget DX 8 is now available, with a focus on UX and Governance.
Office Working Hour Deadline Plugin is an essential addition to the working environment where SLAs and deadlines are implemented.
This plugin will intercept and override how calculations are made by Joget when calculating due dates for SLAs and deadlines imposed on a process.
The Office Working Hour Deadline plugin takes the following into account during calculations:

Figure 3: Sample process instance details view
A process instance is started on 1:59pm on 04 July. According to the process design, the process has a SLA of 15.0 hours.
With the Office Working Deadline plugin activated, the due date would not be a mere 1:59pm + 15 hours. It will be 1:59pm + 15working hours, which means it will start from 1:59pm till 6:00pm on 04july.
On 05 July, there's only 9 working hours. On 06 July, which is another new working day, we will get a 1 hour and 59 minutes from it Effectively, the due date would be on 06 July, 10:59am.
Deadlines act as a timer which triggers an exception transition to another activity when a specified duration has elapsed.
