  • Overdue Tasks: the number of active tasks that are past their due date. By default, overdue tasks will show up first on your task list.
  • Active Tasks: The number of active tasks assigned to you.
  • My Instances: The number of instances where you are the owner.
  • Participant Instances: The number of active instances where you have an active task assigned to you.

If you work with a lot of tasks, the tasks list page is a great place to get a checklist style view of all your active tasks. Select View All to see and sort through all your tasks.

If you often start and manage many Workflow instances and need information on your automation performance, select Dashboard from the top of any Catalytic screen. Dashboards are only available for Admin users.
