When Start Task Action is performed, it automatically executes the specified Tasks.

Specify one or multiple Tasks to be started automatically upon performing the Start Task Action. The choices are either to start a particular Task or to execute all Tasks in particular folder (optionally including all subfolders). Additionally, the user is provided with an option to filter out or include Tasks on the basis of their name pattern.

Start Choose whether to start a particular single Task, multiple Tasks whose names match filtering criteria or all Tasks. The filtering criteria allows starting Tasks that match, contain, start with, end with, do not match, do not contain, do not start with or do not end with specified character sequence or Variable Wizard value.
Task folder Specify the folder where executable Tasks are located.
Include subfolders Specifies whether to start Tasks located also in subfolders of chosen folder when executing multiple or all Tasks.
