Specifying Task Instructions

Task owners can create a set of instructions for completing the task. All other users who have access to the task are only able to read the instructions. If there are task instructions that are inherited from the Task Type, template, or schedule, that instruction text is displayed above the instruction text box and is read-only.

You can also create references to external documents. You can upload a document from your local computer, create a web link, or create a link to a document in Oracle Content Management. References inherited from the Task Type or template are locked, however you can add references.

For template tasks, the Template and Task Types instructions are viewable but not editable.

  To specify instructions:

  1. From the New Task dialog box, select the Instructions tab.

  2. In Instructions, enter instruction text.

  To add a reference:

  1. In the References section, select Actions, and then Add, or select the Add icon.

  2. From the Type list, select one of these types:

    • Local File

      Enter a name, click Browse to select and attach the file, and click OK.

    • URL

      Enter a URL name, then enter the URL, for example: Oracle, http://www.oracle.com.

    • Repository File (Optional)

      From the file list, select the file, and click OK.


      The Repository File option is only displayed if your product is configured with Oracle Enterprise Content Management.
