The UiPath Activities Guide

Get Form Tasks


The GetFormTasks activity helps you query a single action or a set of actions filtered by specific criteria, namely the action's DTO properties:

  • Status
  • Title
  • ID
  • Priority
  • TaskCatalogName
  • AssignedToUser
  • CreatorUser
  • LastModifierUser
  • CreationTime
  • LastModificationTime
  • OrganizationUnitID

The output object of the GetFormTasks activity can be used in any other persistence activity, for example WaitForFormTaskAndResume, to cover the scenarios that require another workflow to wait on the actions, different than the one that created those actions (for example, building a recovery workflow in case the current job fails). You can also pass the output object to a different process as input, so that you don't need to wait for all the actions to be completed until the initial process resumes.



Filtering and querying the actions uses the OData syntax, based on the action's metadata.



  • ContinueOnError - Specifies if the automation should continue even when the activity throws an error. This field only supports Boolean values (True, False). The default value is False. As a result, if the field is blank and an error is thrown, the execution of the project stops. If the value is set to True, the execution of the project continues regardless of any error.



If this activity is included in Try Catch and the value of the ContinueOnError property is True, no error is caught when the project is executed.

  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity.
  • TimeoutMS - Specifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) to wait for the activity to run before an error is thrown. The default value is 30000 milliseconds (30 seconds).


  • Orchestrator Folder Path - The path to the Orchestrator Folder you want to use with this activity. If left empty, the current Orchestrator folder is used. This field supports only strings and String variables.
  • Reference - The action's reference that was set using the CreateFormTask activity.
  • Task Catalog Name - The action's catalog name that was set using the CreateFormTask activity.


  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.

OData Query Options

OData Query Option


Field Data Type



The OData expand option, used to display the related entities of a criterion.




The OData filter option, used to filter the retrieved actions by the specified criteria.


Status in ('Pending', 'Unassigned') and Priority eq 'High'

Order By

The OData orderby option, used to order the retrieved actions ascending (asc) or descdending (desc) by a specified criterion.


"Title asc"
"ID desc"


The OData select option, used to retrieve a subset of the action's properties.


"ID, Status, TaskCatalogName"


The OData skip option, used to skip a number of actions from being retrieved.




The OData top option, used to set the number of records to be retrieved, limited to 1000 records at a time. If left empty, top 100 records are retrieved.



AND/OR operators are also supported.


  • Task Objects (Output) - The list of output objects that match the criteria set in the activity. The output is returned from Orchestrator as a List object. Use this object to create a recovery workflow or to pass it as input to a different process.

In the Body of the Activity

Some properties can be configured straight from the body of the activity itself, for easier handling, such as:

  • Task Catalog Name
  • Reference
  • Filter
  • Select
  • Task Objects (Output)
