To manage the contents of the list, you can sort the collaborative task list according to any column header except Response. To navigate through the pages, you can use the paging controls. For more details about these operations, see Exploring Business Process Portal.
Alternatively, you can view the status of all the collaborative tasks created by you, by clicking the My Collaborations menu. This page displays the list of all the collaborative tasks created by you. This page is the same as the View Collaboration page, and you can perform all the operations as described in the preceding section.
From either of these pages:
1. Click the collaborative task name link in the Collaborative Task column.
The Collaborative Task Details page appears.
Every Collaborative Task Details page displays the Instructions and Response/Notes fields. The remaining fields represent the dataslots added to the parent workstep using Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge. You can either review or add (or edit) the data in the dataslot fields, depending on whether they are editable or not.
2. Review the instructions you have specified for your collaborator, in the Instructions box. You cannot modify the instructions now.
3. Your collaborator can add his/her response in the Response/Note box.
4. To terminate the current collaborative task, click Terminate.
5. To discard your changes, click Reset.
6. To exit this page, click Cancel.
Note: Alternatively, you can terminate the collaborative task without adding any note. To do so, from the View Collaboration page, select the collaborative task checkbox and click Terminate.
