Can I create activity within activity? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a requirement which need activity within activity, example.. in task activity can have child activities like phone call or task too..

    and then if parent activity is do to mark completed should check child activities first, if there have child activities that have status open, parent activity can not to completed.

    for validation in Jscript or plugin is ok, but I can not create relationship between activity entity and one of activity type like task entity. how can I do that?

    please advise.

    thanks.

  • It is not possible to create custom activities with the same behaviour. The only activity that supports this type of behaviour is the case activity. Depending on your needs you may be able to use that.
