Using the Advanced tab of Subprocess workstep properties

You can use the Advanced tab to configure advanced events for the Subprocess workstep on activation, before activation, on completion, when overdue, when an error occurs and on recovery. The Advanced tab of the Properties view for the Subprocess workstep is similar to the Advanced tab for an Activity workstep in that it contains six tabs—Before Activation, On Activation, When Completed, Overdue Actions, On Error, and On Recovery.
By default, the Advanced tab of the Subprocess workstep displays the Before Activation tab. Subprocess worksteps in Web applications have Before Activation and When Completed tabs, in which you can define the event to be executed on activation and on completion of the subprocess workstep (For more information, see Adding script to a workstep).
For information on procedures for defining advanced properties of a Subprocess workstep that are similar to Activity worksteps, see Using Advanced tab of Activity workstep properties. Features in the Advanced properties of the Subprocess workstep that differ from the Advanced properties in the Activity workstep are:
1. The On Activation tab contains the synchronization function that provides a Wait for the subprocess to complete before proceeding checkbox. Select this checkbox to set the workstep as synchronous: the process waits for the subprocess workstep to be completed before proceeding.
2. The Overdue Actions tab does not have an On last overdue section. You can change performers of overdue actions only for Activity worksteps.
