Adding a parallel process to a stage

Suggest edit Updated on October 29, 2021

Support your business process events that do not require a run-time order by adding a parallel process to a stage.

For example, if your business goal is to review a job application, you can create a parallel process named Background check that you can conduct outside of the main process.
  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Case types, and then click the case type that you want to open.
  2. On the Workflow tab, click Life cycle.
  3. In the Case life cycle section, hover over a stage, and then add a process:
    • To add a new process, click MoreAdd parallel processNew process.
    • To add a new multistep form, click MoreAdd parallel processNew multistep form.
    • to reuse an existing process, click MoreAdd parallel process, and then select the process in the list.
  4. In the text field, replace the default process label with a descriptive name.
  5. Click Save.
Result: At run time, the process starts when a case enters the stage.What to do next: Add meaningful tasks to your parallel process by adding steps. For more information, see Steps in a case life cycle.
