I have a trigger to create two tasks in a case.

What I need here is to open a new task when both tasks are closed.

I tried some things and I just got opened a new task if just one of the first tasks is closed. And I need both tasks closed to create a new task.

List<Task> tasks = new List<Task>();
List<Case> cse = Trigger.new;

    for (Case c : cse) {
        if (c.motivo__c == 'Solicitação de Pagamento' && c.motivo_a__c == 'Laboratório sistema FF'){
      Task tsk = new Task
          (whatID = c.ID, 
           Subject = 'Malote',
           ActivityDate = Date.today(),
           Ownerid = '005U0000000EtIH');

This is my first trigger. Works fine. I basically do the same thing to create another task in the same case with the subject = "Lançar PP"

I tried create a new trigger in task to create a new task when "Malote" and "Lançar PP" are closed.

        if (t.subject == 'Malote' && t.subject == 'Lançar PP' && t.status == 'Completed'){
      Task tsk = new Task
          (whatID = t.WhatID, 
           Subject = 'Baixar PP',
           ActivityDate = Date.today(),
           Ownerid = '005U0000000EtIH');

And this doesn't work.

  • What have you tried? What exactly is not working? Sounds like you're not correctly checking that both tasks were closed.

You need to create some storage to keep information about whether both tasks are closed outside the loop, like:

Boolean firstClosed = false, secondClosed = false

You might also need a list to store your new tasks:

List<Task> newTasks = new List<Task>();

Passing throught the loop, you can then set whether the first task is closed with

firstClosed = true;

And the same for second task:

secondClosed = true

You can check if both tasks are closed, and if so, perform appropriate task:

if (firstClosed && secondClosed) {
    // Task newTask = ...
    // newTasks.add(newTask);

When you leave the loop, insert new tasks

insert newTasks;
