What can I do with Tasklist?#

Tasklist shows you all user tasks that appeared in processes. Those processes are running in Zeebe.

User tasks needs an interaction from the user - that can be updating and adding variables or just completion of the task. The user needs to claim a task first, a user can even unclaim an already claimed task. If the user has claimed a task, then the task is completable. Different Task status filters helps the user to choose the desired task.
