      Description

      When the workflow start button, in the "start task" form of any workflow, is clicked multiple times consecutively, multiple tasks are created.

      Steps To reproduce

      • Login to Share UI
      • Navigate to 'My Tasks' page
      • Click 'Start Workflow'
      • Select a workflow ex. 'New Task', populate the form and assign a 'Assignee'
      • Click rapidly (ex. double click, a common habit for some Windows users) the 'Start Workflow'

      Actual Behaviour

      • Multiple workflow tasks get created for each click before page switches to workflow task is created for the same form

      Expected Behaviour

      • One workflow task gets created, regardless of how many clicks on the "Start Workflow" button occurs.

      This is a bit difficult to replicate if you have a fast system.
