This video shows the administrative Task page and associated design. Here is the transcript of the video:

Next, we'll take a look at the Administrative Task page. We have already seen the end user task pages that are a part of the individual steps in the process. But sometimes you also need administrative access to the tasks. So as we saw in the previous clip, there's a table of tasks at the bottom of the process instance page. And if you click on one of these, you get a page that is specific to that task. Properties are shown and read only form. Notice that this one is not finished yet. And notice that the assigning here is already set. Here we have a reassign task button. The reassign task button brings up a typeahead so that I can, for example, type in Kyle and reassign that task to Kyle. And so he is now assigned to that. Behind the scenes, this uses the rest API to do the reassign. So let's take a look at the design of the task admin page. In the hierarchy under process definitions and instances is the task page. Pretty much everything on here is exactly like the other patterns. With the exception of a reassign task button, which we plunk in here inside of the path breadcrumb and just set the task. And that's all there is to it. So you can imagine many other kinds of things you could do on an administrative page like this. Obviously, it doesn't include the variables or many other things that you could include. These administration pages are intended as a sample to get you started thinking about how you could build custom administration capabilities using Apex Designer. So that is the design of the task page. In the next clip, we're going to talk about a few other little details about how the app itself is designed.
