Add a Loop action to a task


Use the Loop action in a task sequence to make your process repeat a series of actions before it goes on to the next action in your design. Loop actions can be used to try a specific action at a specific number of times before giving up and moving on. For more information about the different types of loops and using the Loop action, see the Suggested content.

  1. From the Architect home page, click or hover over the Flows menu and select the desired flow type.
  2. Create a new flow or select an existing one. The flow’s configuration page opens.
  3. Select the task and click Click to open. The task editor opens.
  4. From the Toolbox, expand the Loop category and drag the Loop action to the desired location in the task sequence.
  5. In the Loop action design area, in the Name field type a meaningful name for the switch action. This name becomes the name of the Loop action in the task editor.
  6. In the Loop Count field, use the + or – buttons to set the number of times to repeat the sequence of commands.
  7. In the Current Index Data Name, type the label to identify the variable on tasks.
  8. Add the desired variable inside the loop action.
  9. Optionally add Next Loop and Exit Loop actions to the previous action’s Yes and No output paths.
  10. Continue building the task per your flow design.
