About Tasks

Updated: February 27, 2012

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

After specified media file types arrive in a watch folder, IIS Transform Manager runs the tasks included in a job template that's bound to the watch folder against the media files. A job template can contain one task that acts on media files that are dropped in a watch folder or multiple tasks that are chained together in a workflow. In a task workflow, the initial task acts on files that are dropped in a watch folder and subsequent tasks act on the output of preceding tasks. Tasks that are created by using the Transform Manager Plug-in Model can perform custom transform actions, and usually contain properties that you can update to modify the task output. Tasks can also be executable program files that you can pass parameter values to in order to modify the actions that are performed by the program. The default installation of Transform Manager contains tasks of both types.

This section contains the following topics to help you manage and edit tasks:
