Return to Workflow Building Block Overview

This task dimension defines the data sets collected under workflow control. Each data set is defined by its business process, version, and time frame (one single year, in most cases). The name of the task consists of:

<Business Process> <Version> <Year> or <Business Process> <Version> <First Year> – <Last Year>

You can create and change workflow tasks through the Workflow Wizard. The definition that applies to all workflow activities is stored in the attributes or the _WF Task dimension:
