Use
Task actions can be viewed a non-linear sequences of primitive actions which denote atomic units of computing work, such as user's selection of a command or menu entry using mouse or keyboard. Winograd and others have referred to these units of cooperative work between people and computers as "structured discourses of work" /Winograd, 1986/, while task chains have become popularized under the name of "workflow" /Bolcer, 1998/.
