Through this application, a process administrator user can view all the documents that were created in the system. This application is only visible if the Enable option is set to Yes in Document Management. The Documents Manager interface is shown in the image below:


The following sections describe the different components that make up this application.


  • Read: This option allows reading the document.
  • Rename: This option allows renaming the document.
  • Check In: This option allows you to upload new document versions to the document repository of the workflow system.

    For this action to be available, two conditions have to be met:

    The document type must have the Change action enabled in the task where the Work with Documents was executed.
    The user who wants to upload the new document version must have previously executed the Change Document action.
    Once a user uploads a new version of a document to the repository, it is unlocked and it can be changed by other users.

  • Check Out: This action downloads a copy of the last version of the document in the user's PC, which will be used to perform the modification.
    When a user executes this action on a document, it is locked for the exclusive use of the user that executed the Modify Document action. This implies that other users will not be enabled to modify the document until the modification is completed through the check in action.
    A document will have this action enabled only if the type of document it belongs to has the modification action enabled in the task where Work with Documents was executed.
  • Undo Check Out: It allows undoing the check out action.
  • Remove: This option allows deleting documents from the documents repository of the workflow system. This means that every existing version of the documents will be physically deleted from the repository.
    A document will have this action enabled only if the type of document it belongs to has the Delete action enabled in the task where Work with Documents is being executed.
  • Versions: It shows the different versions of a document.
  • Extended Attributes: It allows adding extended attributes to a document.
