you ever need a custom work list and need to open the human task from
this list, then this blog can help you. All you really need to do is
find the list of tasks and create the URL that opens the task from the
custom work list. This is not as straightforward as it seems since the
URL contains some dynamic fields that you will need to derive from
information about the tasks.
The need for a custom work list
usually involves some sort of relationship between instances in a
process, or between tasks in different processes such that the OOTB
functionality of the BPM workspace is not sufficient. The user wants to
see a logical grouping of tasks or between parent and child tasks. These
tasks should be shown grouped together. These tasks can be shown in a
table or tree format and each task should have a link to click on to
open the task directly from the form. This is an example of such a list
The relationships between tasks
may consist of simple parent/child relationships. The above table was
used to implement a custom ACM UI where each of these tasks (children)
are activities for a given case (parent). Here a work request (case)
with several child tasks, or activities are listed along with the
status, description due date, started date and assignee. Notice the
links to open the task or reassign the task.
Another example is
when a tasks is related to another other (like siblings) by customer or
account ID. In all of these examples, the user wants a convenient way to
jump directly to the related task, without closing the current task or
form, going to the work space, finding and opening the task from the
work space. Here are some example users stories this post can help you
