Batch start multiple processes, one for each row in an Excel or CSV file
To send tasks/emails to a different email address in every row
To generate a PDF for every row
To update to GitHub for each row
Note: This action is used in one process to start a different process. You must create a second process for this action to start.
This is the Excel file you want to filter. This field will likely use a reference to a file uploaded in a prior task or process
The row number, starting from 1, where the batch process should read data.
The sheet name within the excel or CSV file (note: excel defaults to 'sheet1', 'sheet2', etc.)
The process id that each row will start
The number of days the process should take once it starts
Enter a team member as the owner of the new process. The default owner is the person who started the current process
This action involves two processes: the initial process will include this action step; the subprocesses are the outcome of this action on each row
The initial process will usually only include one or two steps to bring in the spreadsheet and then begin the batch process
All field values in the initial process will be available in all subprocesses
You can also use Data Tables to store information in Catalytic and reference data from within
- To reference the runID of the starter process within the subprocesses, you can use the globally available field run.rootRunID
- Use Pushbot: Wait to keep your batch process run open until all the runs in a batch task are complete. This way, you can end your starter run and cancel all batch-started runs.
