By placing a [Timer Intermediate Event] in the middle of a flow diagram you can make the issue sleep until a specified restart time. The restart time refers to the Datetime-type Data Item entered in the upstream Step. For example, in a "Reservation Acceptance flow", you can build a mechanism to transmit a reminder email automatically at the downstream Step the day before the reservation date.
1. Usage Example of [Timer Intermediate Event]
- a. Calling of Automatic Processing
- Sending a notification email one day before the reservation date to the customer who made the reservation
- b. Reminder for Users
- Creating a validation report on Return On Investment one month later
2. Setting Restart Time of [Timer Intermediate Event]
- 1. Prepare a Datetime-type Data Item
- Prepare a DateTime-type Data Item with the name "Reminder Time", for example
- 2. Set the Timer of the Intermediate Event
- Restart time will be determined when the Issue reaches the Event
- If it is necessary to calculate the restart time, you should use EL syntax (e.g. "# now.addDays (1) .addHours (9)")
- If the restart time has already passed at the time the issue arrives at the Timer Event, the issue will progress without pausing
- If the restart time was not entered upon arriving at the Timer Event, the Issue will progress without pausing
