The integration of Activiti in Alfresco provides three types of tasks in a process definition.
- describes work to be done by a human actor. When process execution arrives at a user task, a new task is created in the task list of the user or group assigned to that task.
- describes an automatic activity. When a process execution arrives at the script task, the corresponding script is executed.
- is similar to a script task, but is specifically set up to send an email.
