Ability to launch a process app across multiple processes

Our team are starting to use Process Apps within Blueworks Live to assign workflows and tasks to users (mainly to create a reminder to review a process). However, we would need to launch these within each individual process, it would be useful to have an option to choose multiple processes to launch a process app into.
It would also be useful to have a regular 'due date' within the process app rather than a specific date (e.g. every month or every 6 months).

    Accepting the requirement for scheduled workflows. Thanks!

    Thanks for your request! We hope to support scheduled workflows, much like you describe, where you can configure either a specific date or a repeating interval (e.g. every month) when the process app would automatically launch and tasks assigned to users. With that, you could schedule reviews for each process individually. Would you then still have a need to launch a single process app across multiple processes? And if so, can you elaborate on your use-case? Thanks!
