A global timer can create time-controlled tasks once it is configured in the
process and the process has been published
on the server. These tasks will be
listed and described in the Tools module.
A global timer can also be started manually via the
Edit menu / Start global timer job.
2. IMAP event source
This event source monitors a folder on an IMAP email server and
generates an event when an email message is received, for example.
3. Generic event source
Java classes, even from third party providers, can function as generic
event handlers as long as they implement the IWorkflowEventSource interface.
