Resend workflow email notification

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have an activiti workflow that i start with this function:

function startWorkflow(assigneePerson)
{
    var workflow = actions.create("start-workflow");
    workflow.parameters.workflowName = "activiti$activitiWorkflow";
    workflow.parameters["bpm:assignee"] = assigneePerson;
    var futureDate = new Date();
    futureDate.setDate(futureDate.getDate() +7);
    workflow.parameters["bpm:workflowDueDate"] = futureDate; 
    workflow.parameters["bpm:sendEMailNotifications"] = true;
    return workflow.execute(document);
}

I want the assignee to receive until the due date (during those 7 days) each day a daily reminder to do the task assigned.

How can I do that?

I tried the following:

<process id="activitiWorkflow" name="Review process">

        <startEvent id="start" name="Submit Review Task"
            activiti:formKey="wfa:submitReviewTaskk" />

        <sequenceFlow id='flow1' 
            sourceRef='start'
            targetRef='reviewTask' />

        <userTask id="reviewTask" name="Autorisation"
            activiti:formKey="wfa:activitiReviewTaskk">

        </userTask>
<endEvent id="end" />
 <boundaryEvent id="sid-E18EA6BC-64EC-4511-B9EF-01D8152829AE" attachedToRef="reviewTask" cancelActivity="false">
      <timerEventDefinition>
        <timeCycle>R6/PT24H</timeCycle>
      </timerEventDefinition>
    </boundaryEvent>

    </process>

Add an alfresco script task linked to your timer boundary event and add your send email action in that script. put an end event after the script task. you can set variables with Listener to be used in the script task for triggering the mail action.

Be sure to uncheck cancelActivity flag in your Boundary Event.
