User Task prevents process instance from being finished

Hi all, this is quite a complicated question: I have a process that should run for example one week. Every day of this week, a user has to fill in some values in a user task. I tried to model it this way:
UserTask.bpmn (7.2 KB)

However, if no user cares for the user task, the process instance keeps alive for eternity. But what I want is that the process instance will be finished when the final timeout is reached, no matter whether there is a pending user task or not.

Does anybody have a good idea?

Thanks a lot in advance, Christian

Shouldn’t a Terminate End Event do the trick?

that was it:

Thanks a lot!
