ProcessMaker is pleased to announce the release of version 1.2-2740. This version offers a new feature called "events" which allows an action to be executed according to a specific timing in the process. Events execute relative to the time when a task or a series of consecutive tasks begins or ends. An event can be used to send out an email to keep everyone in your organization apprised of upcoming tasks and let them know when their tasks have passed their deadlines. Similarly, they can be used to execute a trigger which customizes your organization's responses at various times in their workflow. For more information, see: ... ons#Events

In addition to events, the latest release of ProcessMaker offers an update of web services, fixing a number of bugs and offering more details in the return objects for web services. Plus, there are two new web services functions, triggerList() and systemInformation(), to list the available triggers and obtain information about the ProcessMaker installation, respectively.

The login screen for ProcessMaker has been updated to allow the user to select the language and workspace from dropdown boxes and see the system information. Additionally, the "Fields List" handler has been redone for a more graphical experience when editing DynaForms. More importantly, nearly 50 bugs have been fixed, making ProcessMaker a more reliable BPM and workflow management application for your organization.

16.- Events.-
Most actions in a process are executed in response to the user, but sometimes an action needs to be executed according to a specific timing in the process. In ProcessMaker, '''''events''''' are actions which execute relative to the time when a task or a series of consecutive tasks begins or ends. Currently events can execute either the action of sending a message or executing a trigger (but future releases may offer addition options).

Hola que tal a todos, he estado probando la nueva versión de ProcessMaker desde el momento en el que la liberaron, había un punto que no había intentado a hacer debido a que no lo requería por el momento: Edición de DYNAFORMS, cuando creo un dynaform, y lo quiero editar, simplemente no lo abre, solo me aparece una lista vacía, y cuando doy clic en cualesquier otro submenú de PROCESOS, me sale el error que se encuenta en la parte de abajo de la imagen que adjunto,...

que problema estaré teniendo???
es importante mencionar que tengo la nueva versión de PM, desde una instalación desde cero, es decir, no actualice el sistema, instalé desde cero la versión....

Desde ya, gracias por dedicar su tiempo en la lectura de mi post!!
