Defining Rollbase presentation

You can define an activity workstep (in a Business Process) with presentation type as Rollbase to complete the activity using a Rollbase application. Then, you must map the Rollbase page ID to the activity workstep (in a Business Process) to access the activity.
To define a Rollbase presentation for an activity workstep:
1. Select an activity workstep in a Business Process for which you want to define the presentation type as Rollbase.
2. From the Properties view, click the General tab to view the Presentation section.
3. Click Add to open the Add Presentation dialog box.
4. Select Rollbase from the Type drop-down list.
5. Specify the Rollbase page ID in the ID text field. For example, 1400.
Alternatively, you can map workstep with Rollbase presentation format to CHARACTER dataslot or LongChar dataslot to dynamically associate the workstep with a Rollbase page ID. You need to set the initial value of the CHARACTER dataslot to a valid Rollbase application page ID.
a. Click the ellipsis button beside the ID text field.
b. Select Use a dataslot to open the Add Dataslots dialog box.
c. Select a CHARACTER dataslot to be mapped to the workstep presentation.
d. Click OK to add the dataslot and then close the Add Dataslots dialog box.
6. Click OK to add the Rollbase presentation format for the activity workstep.
Note: You cannot add the same presentation type twice to one activity workstep. If you do, an error message appears stating that the Presentation Type already exists. Do you want to override?. Click OK to override the presentation type. 
The Rollbase presentation format is mapped to the selected activity workstep. The defined Rollbase presentation type is displayed in the Presentation section.
Note: You can add multiple presentation types such as Portal, Mobile, GUI, Rollbase and Tablet to a single activity workstep. This enables you to complete an activity from a browser, a Mobile device, a GUI for .NET application, Rollbase application or a Tablet device.
