Joget Workflow v6 Beta 4 Released
Check out the latest Joget Workflow v6 Beta for many new features and improvements in user experience (UX), app maintainability and performance.
In this article, we will attempt to show you on how to introduce a conditional repetitive loop on using Deadlines.
Typically, we would have a Deadline set at the intended activity itself like the following diagram.
Figure 1: Asynchronous deadline set at "Approve Leave" activity to "Send Reminder"
It is a very simple and straight forward design we got above but there may be a need to send out reminder at an interval, not just once. Therefore, we may design our workflow in such a manner like the one below.
Figure 2: Repetitively triggering "Send Reminder" using a waiting activity "Wait for Timeout"
By using a waiting/dummy activity, we can then loop it around and add a conditional transition to trigger/stop sending reminder.
