Form Task Administration

The Form Task Administration page enables administrators to view, create, edit, copy, and delete form tasks. From this page, administrators can also access details of the form task from the Form Task Snapshot page.

The form tasks that display on the Form Task Administration page are the form tasks that are within the administrator's permission constraints for the permission needed to access the Form Task Administration page. Form tasks that are not within the administrator's permission constraints do not display.

Forms are available to organizations that are using Onboarding or Cornerstone HR. For information on Training Forms, select the following link: See Training Forms Administration.

Note: Launching form tasks can only be done from the Actions tab in Universal Profile. Therefore, Universal Profile must be enabled in the portal in order for users to complete forms.

To access the Form Task Administration page, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Form Management > Form Task Administration.

The following information displays on the Form Task Administration page:

Inactive tasks are not assigned as part of future assignments that include the task. Tasks that are in a Queued status cannot be inactivated.
