Events let you to trigger an event as custom way for example by a custom button placed in the Menu Bar or as Context Menu. On the below example you can configure an event for a user that uploads files to their folders and when the batch is completed they will submit and assessment list for the files from the folder.

1. On the Preferences>>Webinterface>>custom forms create a new form, in our example assesm as on the below screenshot. The name is arbitrary, we will reference it later with a meta_ prefix, so in our example the email body should contain {meta_assesment}

2. On the User Manager select the user who needs to have the event triggered (or select the default user to apply for all users), and at the Quick Jump select WebInterafce and at the buttons section add a new Custom Button. For the name use something explicit for the desired action and for the target leave it as default value.

If you want more tasks/jobs mapped to buttons you can add more buttons with different variables on the javascript function and in the task/job you can branch off to do different actions:

a. crate a button to action1 and an other one for action2 :

javascript:customEvent({my_action_decision: 'do_action_1', paths:"{files}"});
javascript:customEvent({my_action_decision: 'do_action_2', paths:"{files}"});

b. In the task/job branch off by using a jump task to verify which button was hit:
