Reminder notification for task

I have designed a workflow where an email is sent to user when task is assigned to him. If task is not completed within 2 hours then an escalation email is sent to user by keeping his manager in CC. I want to send a reminder mail to user for every 10 minutes. I have tried Non-Interrupting timer but it is triggered only once. I want it to be invoked in cycle. How it should be designed?

Hi. You can use an Interrupting timer, send the mail and then you go back to the task.

This email will be sent only once. I want it to be sent every 10 minutes until task is done.

I tried this and the email is sent every X minutes until task is done.

Can you please show me parameters of SendReminderMail. How email is sent multiple times? Is it iteration?

SendReminderMail just have an Email Connector.

The iteration is done by the timer.

Here is how it works : - The task TaskToDo begins (the timer is initialized) - After 10 min, the Timer interrupt the task TaskToDo and SendReminderMail begins - When the mail is sent, TaskToDo begins again (the timer is initialized again) - After 10 min, the Timer interrupt the task TaskToDo and SendReminderMail begins - ... - When the task TaskToDo is done, this process ends.

This will create new id for TaskToDo when TaskToDo is called again. Isn't it?

Yes this is a new task so it has a new id.

It will change the state of previous task to aborted. And will create a new task. I want to send multiple reminders for one task. State of that task should not be changed.

If you want to keep the same task, another solution is to use a gateway have a flow that manage the reminder and a flow for your task. You need to add a boolean "TaskDone" and set its value to true when you submit the task.

I can not configure my email connector, can you show me how you configure yours?

Submitted by antoine.mottier on Mon, 09/04/2017 - 09:31

Please ask a new question instead of reopening an answered question. Also in your new question I think providing information about your email provider, your current configuration and the connector execution error log (Engine logs) can help.
