Deploying a remote task

When you are ready to add the task to the system, the task needs to be deployed.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

Context and remarks

Deploying a remote task means that the task is copied into the consolidated database and the new copy is given a name. The deployed task name is often the same name that the task had during development.

When you deploy a task you can also assign it to a list of Agents. Agents can be added after a task is deployed, so it is not necessary to add them when the task is first deployed. This is useful when new Agents are added to the system after a task has already been deployed.


A remote task must contain at least one command before it can be deployed. For information about commands, see Commands and Adding a command to a remote task.

  1. Double-click the MobiLink project.

  2. Right-click the remote task you want to deploy and click Deploy.

  3. Follow the instructions in the Deploy a Remote Task Wizard.

  4. Click Finish.


The remote task is deployed.


Deployed tasks can be canceled, initiated, reactivated and have recipients added to them. See Deployed remote tasks.
