Add Step Destination Dialog Box

Each task step contains, not only the inputs and outputs needed to complete the step, but the directions to the next step in the task. This is the step destination. When you cannot record a task using the standard workflow, you can bypass the recorded step destination and use the list of available step destinations to select a new step destination for the current step.

You can create task loops by adding or changing a task step's destination to link to a previously executed step. This creates a task loop. Task loops can be advantageous, especially when combined with custom steps. Looping within a custom step provides a substantial performance advantage by using the Runtime Service to quickly navigate screens and process recognition rules.

The list of available step destinations consists of all the step destinations that were recorded when you created your task.
Note Because a step destination appears on the list of available step destinations, does not mean that it is a valid destination for your selected step. Use caution when inserting new step destinations into your task.

The step destination is added to the end of the step destination list for the selected step. If the selected step already has a transient step destination other transient steps do not appear on the list of available step destinations as any given step can only have one transient step destination.

To display the Add Step Destination dialog box, from the Step menu, select Advanced, and then choose Add Step Destination.

Selected Step: The name of the step for which the new step destination is provided.

Available Step Destinations: The list of all possible step destinations recorded for the selected task. Some step destinations may not be valid for the selected step.
