    Difference between workflow blocks?

    keifer2008 Apprentice

      Hi

       

      I was wondering if someone could explain what the Task/Template Instantiation Workflow Block does and how would I use it? What's the difference between it and the Task block? I'm finding the help documentation doesn't clear nor provide many examples on usage...

       

      Thanks

          One of the differences is that the Task/Template can be used to create many tasks via the Fulfillment Item Package and Task Catalog objects.  Take a look at the workflow on the Fulfillment Item BO.  It uses the Task/Template Instantiation block.  Basically you can create a fulfillment item package with a set of tasks as a template, then create a fulfillment item (under a service request) that uses a particular fulfillment item package.  It will (via the workflow) create all of the tasks that are associated with the package on the fulfillment item.
