Using the Messaging tab of End workstep properties

For Business Processes, you can use the Messaging tab to associate a message with the End workstep: the message is published (sent) when the workstep is completed. The message typically starts a new action, such as sending an e-mail. End worksteps in Web applications do not have a Messaging tab.
To assign a message to an End workstep:
1. From the Messaging tab, expand General, then click in the Value column in the Enabled row, to open a drop-down list.
2. Select True from the drop-down list, to view Channel and Message rows.
3. Accept the default Channel or click in the Value column of the Channel row, to view a drop-down list of previously defined channels.
4. Click in the associated Value column of the Message row, to view a drop-down list of previously defined Messages. Select a message from the list: to view the Header and Payload sections.
5. Click in the Value column for each of the Header and Payload section rows to view a list of available dataslots. Select a dataslot to associate the Header or Payload item with a dataslot value.
After you have selected a message, a Message () icon is shown within the End workstep, indicating a message will be sent when the process is completed. For more information about defining or editing messages, see Using the Message Manager.
