Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
N/A

The Task Properties of an external dependency in a Workflow allow changes to be made in the external task (Parent), but when changes are made they are not saved.
This happens both if it is added from another Workflow (storing the Parent value) or directly (no Parent value added). A short video clip (avi) is attached which documents this erroneous behavior.
