What are Task Elements?

Task Elements (also known as Nodes) are the basic building blocks of a Presence Task. Task Elements are dragged into the Task Design View and joined together using a mouse gesture. In the example below (from the Task Designer interface) there are four such Task Elements:

Task Elements are split into the following categories - please follow the category links to read more about the available Task Elements under each category:

Flow Control

These Task Elements control the flow of the Task. Many Tasks have a simple start and end point and a linear flow. Others will be more complex, requiring run-time decisions and branching based on the current data.

Data Access

These Tasks Elements are designed to load information from sources external to Presence.

Data Formatters

These Tasks Elements are designed to manipulate and write information to external sources.

Actions

These Tasks Elements are designed to perform actions.
