BLUEPRINT > How can I automatically launch another process after a task is completed in Tallyfy?
Tallyfy gives you all the power to automate your complex workflows and make it simple!
When we reduce the complexity of a process, we break it down into smaller pieces that run independently as processes (by themselves).
That's exactly what this automation does.
If you've completed a task that indicates that a separate process should start, you're in the right place!
1. Select the step from the blueprint whose completion should trigger the launch of a new process
2. Click "Advanced" to access the "launch another process when this task is complete" feature. Switch the toggle on this feature to ON.
3. Select a blueprint from the dropdown list to launch an automated process.
Please note that archived blueprints won't show in the dropdown list. Also, blueprints with required kick-off form fields will not launch through this feature.
4. You can choose to customize the process name by using insert variables.
If you do not choose to create a naming convention, default process name in the format "Month day - hh:mm - Blueprint Name" will be assigned to the automatically launched process.
5. Now, every time this task is completed, a process 'employee name' - Client Education Session will be launched.
To view the above feature in action, please watch the video below:
The link between the "parent" and the "child"
There is no strict relationship in Tallyfy between the parent (which launched the process) and the child - which was launched from a task in the parent.
This is how you know the automation actually happened.
First - you will see our bot commenting on the precise task where the automation took place - like this:
Second - when the parallel process or "child" launches it's automatically tagged with the unique ID of the task, process and step that spawned it. We're doing more interesting things with that in future. For now - a strong, unique link is maintained between the parent and child.
