The path of the workflow is as important as the elements needed within the process. These elements determine what will happen, whether it is a notification by email to what happens after the approval or rejection of a document. This is done by and completing and connecting your elements.

Building a workflow to include automation, approval processes, and email notifications is easy.

Open the main navigation drawer under the Administration tab and select Workflow.

Admin Menu Item

Creating Workflow Process

A tutorial on how to add elements to your workflow will pop up when you begin a new workflow process. Click the toolbox to review the tutorial for how to add an element or how to connect to the elements. Use the Toolbox to delete the entire process.

Adding elements is handled in two parts: Triggers and Actions. To add an element, select the element and drag and drop on the grid view.

Triggers will initiate the process.
Actions are the activities within the workflow process.

Completing Elements

The path of the workflow is as important as the elements needed within the process. These elements determine what will happen, whether it is a notification by email to what happens after the approval or rejection of a document. This is done by and completing and connecting your elements.

The elements will appear in red or blue when they are dragged onto the grid view. If the element is blue, it is ready to be connected to other elements and settings are optional. When the element is red, settings need to be identified to complete the details. The element will switch from red to blue when the element settings are completed.
