An activity is an instance of the Rule-Obj-Activity rule type. An activity is the fundamental sequential processing unit of the Process Commander system.

The Utility is a shape in a Visio flow diagram, references an activity that updates a work object, but does not require user interaction and input. Your system includes standard activities for utility tasks, and you can create additional ones.

Each utility task references an activity with an Activity Type of Utility from utility shape. we can call activity but vice versa not possible.
