Convert Task Execution Timing

Question asked by Jeremy Schmidt on Sep 16, 2009

A workflow transition with an "Execute command" type has "Wait until the started program terminates." checkbox available.  Is it possible to mimic this with an "Execute task" type?

 

Scenario: User transitions a document through workflow that engages a task to convert the drawing to a PDF.  The task is added to the pending tasks list.  The user then transitions the document again in workflow causing some variables to be updated.  The task is now next in the list so it opens, pulls in the new variables, and creates the PDF.

 

I want to prevent any further transitions for being performed until the task is completed.  Is it possible without custom code?
