Whats new in Business Process Server 3.6.0

With a release of BPS 3.6.0, we have a whole set of new features added to the business process server.

User substitution capability

One of the main features of this release is the user substitution capability provided by BPS. It allows the users to define a substitution for a period of absence. ( For example , a task owner going on vacation). When the substitution period starts, all the tasks assigned will be transferred to the substituted user. Any new user tasks created against the user will be automatically assigned to the substitute as well.
