I can modify the queue view, in Workspace, through Preferences>>Manage Column Headings by adding or removing the headings of my choice.



However, is it possible to add custom column headings to these views ?



Thanks

You can have process varibales show in a column as well.



You just need to make sure you set your variable to be "Visible in UI" in workbench.

How can I set the variable to be "Visible in UI" in Workbench ?

Right click on the variable in the variable view and select "Edit variable".

Sorry, I just realised the "Visible in UI" option is only available in certain variable types.



Once configured, will the heading show automatically in Preferences>>Manage Column headings ? Can I select the (process variable) heading to be a column for all workflows ?



Is there another way to create or modify custom headings manually ?

"Once configured, will the heading show automatically in Preferences>>Manage Column headings ?



You'll need to select "Task by Process" and then select the process the variable belongs to.



"Can I select the (process variable) heading to be a column for all workflows ?"



No. The process variables are workflow specific.



"Is there another way to create or modify custom headings manually ?"



Customizing the workspace interface using the source code.

Jasmin - I created a String variable and used the set value to assign a value to the variable.



The point of this, is to assign different values to the same string (column in Workspace) for different workflows.



For example, I have created a variable "ContractDate" and I would like the contract dates to be different for different processes. I would do this by manually changing the "ContractDate" values, prior to invoking a new process.



However, when I change the "ContractDate" value, it changes all the previously invoked process values.



Can you explain why this is happening ? and if there is a way to acheive what I described ?



Thanks

This doesn't make sense to me. The value of "ContractDate" should be different for every process instance.



Each process instance get their own copy of all process variables.



The only thing that can explain that is a bug, but I've seen this working before so I'm not sure. Unless I'm missing something.



I'll try to run a test later if I have a chance.

I checked tb_processname in the database and every process ID had their assigned values(different Contract Dates).



To add on, when I refresh, in Workspace, all the "Contract Date" values change to the value of the first process ID.



I am only having a problem with the process variables. The task instructions are working fine.



Please do get back to me as it is an essential part of a project I am working on.



Thank you !
