Two tasks ran at the same time - we'll call them "Task 1" and "Task 2". Both tasks have onTaskFailure events that send a notification email that includes the following:

%GetTaskName%
%StepNumber%
%ErrorText%

In this case, Task 2 failed. The value of %GetTaskName% in the notification email was "Task 1" but it should have been "Task 2".

Why would this happen?

Hi Dave,

That should not occur. How are you running the tasks? From Task Builder or Task Administrator? Are the tasks saved prior to running them?

They both ran per scheduled trigger.

Hi Dave,

I have been unable to reproduce what you have described. Are you able to cause the issue by running both tasks simultaneously from within Task Administrator? What version of Automate 11 are you running?
