Task

A Task defines a set of actions that are automatically executed by Flame.

Each Task is made up of a number of Task Steps that carry out individual actions.  

A Task is executed whenever a Task Trigger has been activated.

When a Task has been executed, a Task Job is created with the results of the execution.

When a Task is executed it is ran as if the creator of the Task was carrying out the steps manually. (See Task Security).

See Tasks List to view and manage the tasks in a project.
