Monitor step in recipe author

The monitor step comes as a 'general unit procedure' and is inserted in the recipe the way you would do it with a normal action list. Once inserted, you can open the process configurator which allows you define the actions the way you would do in normal action list creation.
In this particular example we are editing a step calling the reusable action list IPC, which we created in the reusable objects section. Looking at the 'Expire logic' field you can see we selected a routine that will force the operator to execute the IPC action list each hour.
You can reuse your existing recipe steps and method WITHOUT any modification to your steps.
Please remind that the monitor is not limited to calling of recipe steps and reusable action lists. The monitor step can be adapted to call an external object.
