How to force the Workqueue and the TakeNextActivity functionality to utilize the Job due date

3011088

Question / Problem: 

I would like to force the Workqueue and the TakeNextActivity functionality to utilize the Job due date and not the activity due date. Since a job can have many activities, it does not make sense to have to update/modify these due dates multiple times when we could easily set it once on the job and have that be it..

 

Answer / Solution: 

1. Job due dates ("Expected Duration") is shown below

job due dates -expected duration.png

2a. Activity due date ('Doc Review Due date) is shown below

Activity due date -doc review due date.png

2b. Activity due date (Validation Due Date) is shown below

Activity due date -validation due date.png

You want (2a and 2b, doc review due date and validation activity due date) to only show/have Job due date (1).

If so; you can create a date variable and then open the Process extended properties and add the variables as shown below

All 3 due dates are the same. I added a date variable on each activity extended property.
