Have been looking into a strange occurrence, in which some variables can’t be chosen.
The activity we’ve been trying is the FLEXI TASK and TO-DO TASK.
I’ve created a new Workflow – and added an activity :
Choose to configure the activity :
Where are the VARIABLES ??
I have a TEXT and a PERSON variable – see below :
BUT – these don’t show in the field chooser – WHY !!??
The problem :
I’m using Internet Explorer 11 – on Windows 8.1 – and the same happens on IE10.
This doesn’t happen on IE9 though – so it’s a BROWSER issue !!
The other clue is that there are no save/cancel buttons :
The solution :
Firstly, SAVE the workflow – as the browser will need to reload the page.
Within IE11, you need to change the ‘compatibility’ setting.
Make sure to add the current URL (in my case : dev.local)
Click “Close” – and the browser will refresh.
After re-loading the workflow – and checking the activity, it now works !
