Viewing task chains

You can create task chains in various patterns by creating reload tasks and triggers for apps. From the task overview page you can access the task chain dialog to get information about tasks that will trigger a reload of the selected task.

Note: A task can trigger itself in a circular task chain.

Do the following:

  1. Select Tasks on the QMC start page or from the StartS drop-down menu to display the overview.

    Tip: You can filter a column by using the filtering option: .
  2. Click é on a selected task.

    The Task chain dialog opens. The selected task is highlighted and the arrow on the left side of the dialog points to the selected task in the tasks overview page. The dialog displays information about the task chaining and you can manage the tasks by performing a number of actions, as follows:

    • Preceding tasks displays the tasks that initiates the selected task when completed. This can be a single task or a number of tasks that must all be completed within a set time period. Click U to expand the list and collapse by clicking S.

    • Following tasks displays the tasks that will be initiated when the selected task is completed. The selected task can trigger another task on its own or together with other tasks. Click U to expand the list and collapse by clicking S.

      Note: Two levels of following tasks are displayed.
    • Click ô in the dialog heading if you want to update the task status, that is displayed to the left of each task:

    • Click Stop next to the task to manually stop a task.
    • Click outside the dialog if you want to close the dialog.
    • Double-click a task in the dialog.

      The tasks overview page is displayed and the task you double-clicked is selected. You can click é to display the task chain applied to that task.
