Hi everyone.


I am trying to create my own function in Automate 7 that will accept various parameters and that can be called from other tasks.


Can someone please point me to a link on how to do that?


Thanks for the help.

Wayne, there are two ways:
-either using subtasks (managed tasks) that you invoke from the "Star Task" action. During execution, subtasks share their variables with the calling task.
-or using a basic script file that declares the functions (with parameters). Invoking that basic script file at the beginning of a task makes all the functions declared therein available throughout the task in any expression, although they will not be listed in the expression builder.
