Custom task description - like LiveCycle instructions with variables

Avatar

Level 6

In LiveCycle, we were able to use xPath to add custom text within the "instruction" of a User assignment - like this

{$ /process_data/@id $} - Here is an example in LiveCycle

In AEM, is there a method to inject variable information in the Description field of a task?

 

The use case is simple . . . a user might have 100 tasks from the same workflow but, they need to prioritize their work by look at meta-data such as part number or something else.  Currently in AEM, they would be required to open each task to look at the meta data.  How would we accomplish this in AEM Task assignments?

 

Thanks,

I think your best option is to add custom columns to the inbox screen and display the appropriate information under those columns

Yes, we have a lot of variables and that's a big webpage.  Was there something specific that you are referring to?  I believe we understand variables very well but, maybe I missed something.  Please point to a specific location that you think might help us.  This has become very important.  Thank you.

Bad news, it isn't searchable . . . I guess they can use the "Find" from within the browser.

Ok, granted I'm a slow reader, I cannot find any documentation that helps me.  So, I've been surfing and reading for over an hour now.  Can you spoon feed me?  Here is my screen.  I'm at the top left.  What do I do?
