Default TaskExecuter should unload more then one item...How?

Hi all,

I have a problem which I want to describe...

I have one source and more than one sinks. A TaskExecuter takes a batch of 7 items from the source (There is a Queue after the source). This batch has for example 3 items for sink1 and 4 items for sink2. If the TaskExecuter arrives at the sink1 it unloads just ONE item instead of the assigned 3 items. Then the TaskExecuter moves to the next sink2 and unloads just one item again instead of the all 4 assigned items... then the TaskExecuter moves back to sink1 and unloads the next item... and so on...

I want the TaskExecuter to unload more then one item (it should unload all assigned items in one step) at ONE arrival! How can I realize it...???

- the TaskExecuter moves on NetworkNodes
- the items will be assigned to the according sinks by Labelnumber

Thank you very much for your help!

Best regards,
