Campaign owners can define task due dates when loading the tasks in the campaign by using a Talend Job. Running the Job creates the tasks in the campaign and label them with the due date and time using the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss.

However, setting a due date when loading tasks overrides the value which you may have defined when creating or editing the campaign.

You can then use the due dates to filter the tasks in a campaign and facilitate task management.

Procedure

  1. Create a Job with the tMap and tDataStewardshipTaskOutput components to load data from a file into a campaign you have already created in Talend Data Stewardship.
    Suppose that the input data flow has a due date column of the type Date for this example.
    When computing the due date in the Job, you can consider two main use cases :
    • The service-level agreement (SLA) varies based on the data. For instance, you are dealing with customer deduplication, you have two days to solve a duplicate for Tier-1/platinum customers but five days for Tier-2/Gold customers.
    • The due date is computed via an external calendar to include days off, i.e. week-ends, public holiday, etc..
  2. Use the tMap component to map the input data flow to the output flow and to transform the Date type of the due date column to Long.

    For further information about tMap, see tMap Standard properties.

  3. Configure the tDataStewardshipTaskOutput component to load the tasks into the campaign defined on Talend Data Stewardship.

    For further information about tDataStewardshipTaskOutput, see tDataStewardshipTaskOutput Standard properties.

  4. Run your Job to load the tasks in the campaign with the due date.
  5. In the task list, select the Due Date column and a bar in the chart to restrict the number of the listed tasks to the selected date. This can help you listing the tasks which due soon and prioritize working on them.

    For more information about different ways of filtering tasks, see Filtering tasks.
