Process History and Activity

When an Automation Process is opened for editing, this also displays the History and Activity tabs.

History

The History tab displays the history of each time that specific Process has run.

By default, the Process History tab will be filtered to show only processes with a Started date within the past 7 days. 

To increase the date range, hover over the Started heading and click the List icon.

The Filters option is initially displayed. Use the fields to update the date range relative to the current date or click Clear to remove the filter.

The History tab for an individual process is used in the same way as the History tab from the main Automation Dashboard, which shows the history of all processes. For example. any errors are displayed, you can click an entry to display the drawer and if a Process is in Progress you can complete a Task from the drawer. Refer to Automation History.

Activity

The Activity tab displays audit information about when the Process was created, all changes that were made to that Process and the user who made the changes.

Stopping a Process that is in Progress

From the Process History tab, if needed, you can stop a process that is in Progress. This can be used, for example, if the Process is in Progress due to a blocking Task or a Delay and needs to be stopped, or if you have made a mistake with what the filter has included or in a Template used in the Process.

If the Process is running for multiple Clients, Documents, Jobs or Tasks these are displayed individually so there may be more than one Process that you need to Stop.

  1. In Automation - Processes, open the relevant Process.
  2. Display the History tab.
  3. Select the process in the History tab.
  4. Click Stop.

    The Status of the process displays as "Stopped".  
    When a process is "Stopped", you can still display the information for any of the steps and use the links to see any documents or Tasks that were created.

When an entry is selected in the History, the Run again and Activity Link button are enabled. Where a Process has been stopped the Retry button is enabled.2450_Process_History_Retry.gif

  • Retry will run the stopped process from where it was stopped.
  • Run again will re-run the whole process from the beginning. Where the process was run, for example for a specific client, this will rerun it for that client.
  • Activity Link can be used to copy a link to the History entry, for example, to send for support purposes.
