Receive or Send Task

The definition of Receive Task in BPMN Spec 1.2 is :
Receive Task is designed to wait for a message to arrive from an external participant (relative to the Business Process).

so could a token traverse from a None Task (a task without any specific type) to a Receive Task in the same pool?
or the incoming Sequence Flow of a Receive Task must come from another Pool?

H user,

Thanks for your post.

so could a token traverse from a None Task (a task without any specific type) to a Receive Task in the same pool?

Yes.

or the incoming Sequence Flow of a Receive Task must come from another Pool?

You can only have Message Flow from another Pool to the Receive Task since Sequence Flow cannot cross a Pool boundary.

BTW, I attached a sample process involving Receive Task for your reference.

Dear Lilian,

Thank you for your reply.
And Sorry for not explaining it clearly, what I mean for usage of Receive Task is as attachment.
I would like to know if it is wrong way to use Receive and Send Task in the same pool.

Thank you in advance.

Warm Regards,

Hi Janice,

Sorry for my late response. Yes, you can have the Receive and Send Task in the same pool.

BTW, when we use Send Task and Receive Task, we are talking about interaction between self pool and other pool.
In your BPD, you are modeling interaction within self pool (AAA Company), using normal tasks can present the similar meaning.

You can use external to invoke back to IT (like the attached image). If there is any further question, please feel free to ask.
