    Preserve data from one instance of a workflow to another

      Hi all,

      I have a quite general question which has been bothering me for a while. It has to do with preserving data between instances of a workflow.

      What I need is to preserve some data from one instance of a workflow (as a task in the WF) and then stall the WF for some time - actually it must be stalled until another workflow finishes (this second WF should batch a number of tasks which should be sent (together with all the data) in a form to a different user).
      However when this second WF finishes it must thus send a "continue message" to all the instances of the first so that they can continue from their previous states.

      I hope you can understand the scenario, otherwise I'll try to elaborate further.

      If you could have some hints for what activities in the Workbench I should use and some pointers for pitfalls I would be very greatful.

      Thanks in advance
