Specifying general properties of Subprocess workstep

From the General tab of the Properties view:
1. Identify the workstep by entering a name in the Name box. The name of the workstep appears in the process template diagram. Workstep names can only include alphanumeric characters and underscores (_).
2. When specifying the Performer in a Subprocess workstep, you must select a process to serve as the subprocess in the workstep. You can specify a process installed either on your local server or on a remote server.
To define a performer (that is, to select a process) for the Subprocess workstep, click the ellipsis button beside the Performer box to open the Performer dialog box.
a. All the subprocesses available in the process are listed in the Performer dialog box. If many subprocesses are listed, then you can search the Subprocesses performer type using the Search box and any name containing that string is listed.
b. After selecting a subprocess, click OK to return to the Subprocess workstep and returning to the Subprocess Properties view. The subprocess is defined as the performer of the Subprocess workstep.
3. To define other general properties of a Subprocess workstep, which are the same of those described for Activity worksteps, refer to Specifying general properties of Activity workstep.
Note: You can enter a description (optional) for the subprocess workstep in the Description tab. A description can be up to 4095 characters.
Note: For Process Models, you can use the Alerts tab to associate an alert with the Subprocess workstep when it is initially activated or completed. For more information, see Associating an alert with a workstep.
