New features and changes

New manual task system variables available in email templates

The following system variables are now available in email templates when used inside manual task activities.

Variable Type Availability Example value
System.Task.ChangeTime DateTime OnChange 11/8/2021 3:42:08 PM
System.Task.Comment String OnChange "Comment from assignee"
System.Task.Completed Boolean OnChange False
System.Task.PreviousStatus String OnChange NotStarted
System.Task.ShortDescription String (Translated) Notify, Remind, OnChange "Order new computer"
System.Task.Status String OnChange InProgress

Short description in approval activitiy

The short description property previously only found in manual task activities is now also available in approval activities.

The System.Task.ShortDescription variable can be used inside email templates (notify, remind) and is also available inside events (OnForeachApprove, OnForeachReject, OnForeachTimeout).

The "Set task description" activity is also allowed inside events to change the short description.

To-Do List now uses task short description as title

To highlight the contents of approvals and manual tasks, especially when a service contains multiple tasks, the task's short description is now rendered as the title in the To-Do list, above the service name.

If no short description is set, the service name is used as a title just like in previous versions.
