Configure a Mark finished activity

  1. Add an activity to the map.

    By default, the Configuration tab is open in the properties panel of the activity.

  2. Change the default Name of the activity to something meaningful.
  3. On the Type list, select Capture > Mark finished.
  4. On the Input document/folder list, select a document or folder variable as an input to the activity. See Create a document variable and Create a folder variable.
    At runtime, the document is marked as finished with corresponding timestamp so that retention policy knows when the retention period has started for a particular document and hence when a document becomes subject for deletion. If a folder variable is used, all the documents (including the documents in sub-folders) in the folder are marked as finished, with a timestamp.
  5. Save or release the process map.
