Each activity has a General tab, which allows you to modify general parameters that are specific to the activity.
The Properties tab allows you to modify the activity’s global parameters, particularly the label and the ID. Configuring this tab is optional.
By default, certain activities do not have an outbound transition. You can add one from the Transitions tab or from the activity’s Properties tab to apply other processes to your population in the same workflow.
Depending on the activities, you can add several types of outbound transitions:
If applicable, specify a Segment code for the activity’s outbound transition. This segment code will allow you to identify where subsets from the target population come from, and may, later on, serve for message personalization purposes.
In the activity’s properties screen, there is an Advanced options tab that lets you define the activity’s execution mode and behavior in case of errors.
To access these options, select an activity in a workflow, then open it using the button from the action bar.
The Execution field allows you to define the action to be carried out when the task is started. There are three options for this:
The In case of error field allows you to specify the action to be carried out should the activity encounter an error. There are two options available for this:
The Behavior field allows you to define the procedure to follow if asynchronous tasks are used. There are two options available for this:
The Max. execution duration field allows you to specify a duration such as “30s” or “1h”. If the activity is not finished after the duration specified has been elapsed, an alert is triggered. This has no impact on how the workflow functions.
The Affinity field allows you to force a workflow or a workflow activity to execute on a particular machine. To do this, you must specify one or several affinities for the workflow or activity in question.
The Time zone field allows you to select the time zone of the activity. Adobe Campaign allows you to manage the time differences between multiple countries on the same instance. The setting applied is configured when the instance is created.
By default, if no time zone is selected, the activity will use the time zone defined in the workflow properties.
The Comment field is a free field that allows you to add a note.
