Regardless of the type of Task you add to your process, all configurations of a task will be through the Process Flow tab interface.
After a task has been added to your process, a context sensitive task menu is available for each task by just hovering over the task itself.
From this Task Menu, you will be able to access specific areas of configuration. The following is a high-level list of available configurations for tasks:
|Configuration ->Edit Detail
