The attached .zip (rename as a .package to open) demonstrates the "throttle" concept in Workflow.

The concept of a throttle in Workflow is basically to slow things down in a tight loop to give other external processing a chance to "catch up".

The flow starts off by declaring a 15-long array and our throttle variable, an integer initially set to 1. Our plan is to pause for 5 seconds for every 5 elements we advance in the array. Inside the loop, we use a "demo" component to represent our processing. Immediately afterwards, we check if our throttle variable is greater than or equal to 5. If less than 5, we increment throttle by 1. If greater than or equal to 5, we pause for 5 seconds, then we decement throttle all the way back down to 1 to start anew.

Hopefully this helps Workflow users of all skill levels to help slow things down a bit where needed.

This short blog describes how to contribute or suggest changes to collaborative articles (wiki) onConnect.

The release of Workflow 7.5 revolutionizes the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. You can find these component pages in the Articles section of the Endpoint Management Community.

As a member of the Workflow community, you can earn Symantec Connect points by adding your knowledge, use cases, and examples to the wiki pages for the components that you use.

First a quick tip to help you sort articles. You can filter the queue by author and isolate only the collaborative (wiki) articles. In the "Authors" drop-down menu, select "SymantecWorkflowTeam" (see screenshot below). The resulting queue displays the articles to which you can contribute.

Many user have expressed dismay at seeing duplicate date information when they generate custom reports in Servicedesk.  The simple answer is that when generating the report they are including too much information.  In addition to the standard process and incident fields, they are also electing to show All Tasks.  This automatically adds duplicate date information to the report, and is unnecessary.  Simply remove that from the report, and you will have the output date formatted that you require.
