I created a doc read functionality using the assign flexi task workflow. I need almost every associate to read the uploaded documents. That being said ... everyone will get a task. I am looking at 1000+ tasks that will need to be sent out. I can sent about 53 without a problem.. when I add another group making a total of 100 it fails.
Is there a limit on tasks that can be sent out?
Here is a little overview of that I have so far.
I have a Yes/No column named "Required to read" When "Required to read" is set to Yes on the form the workflow below starts
1) Run if Required to read" =Yes
2) Pause for 5 Minutes. This allows for the document to upload before the tasks sends out to everyone. Other wise the upload a document form will not disappear until all of the tasks are sent out.
3) "-" is the flexi task. see the second image.
Here, I use the edit task form to display the document that is required to read.
Once they click read it sends the task to another task list where I have 2 other workflows that pull in the associates location and center.
When I have the two separate workflows enabled I sometimes get a "task is locked by another workflow" workflow. I assume that's because the task is taking along time to process sending to that many people. So when I try to go and read the document it has not been processed yet on the task list locking the workflow.
Though when I have the two workflows disabled, it works for 53 people... I just then cant pull in their managers name and location.
If anyone knows a tip or trick for sending out tasks to about 1000 people please let me know!
