    Tasks and Actions

    Fred Muhlenberg Newbie

      Reading the documentation and looking at the 3.0 tutorial, I'm a little confused on when one would choose to use TaskAssignments versus Actions. Would someone help to clarify the differences?

      Maybe I'm thinking about my problem all wrong. The problem I am trying to address is:

      1) A user submits a form
      2) A notification is sent to one or more external users
      3) The external user(s) perform some external action
      4) The external user(s) notify the workflow
      5) The workflow continues

      The time for the external users to act is long so I must persist a transaction (free up a thread) and wait for notification. The persistence piece is straight forward (good example)

      Would TaskAssignments be the way to go?
