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 and populate the Data Table with the queried information.

Data Formatters

These Tasks Elements are designed to format and write the contents of the current Data Table to external sources.

Custom Nodes

Allow you to create and re-use custom nodes to call Presence Tasks or Java classes

Actions

These Tasks Elements are designed to perform actions.

Alerts
File Actions
Other Actions
Barcodes
Enterprise Messaging
