Workflows introduce the ability to build Tasks around Entities and Documents using rules and deadlines. Workflows allow Documents and Entities to pass through a traceable lifecycle. Pseudo Workflows can be created through Saved Searches; however, Workflows consist of a sequence of connected steps where each step follows without delay or gap and ends just before the subsequent step may begin.

Workflow Tasks can be Concurrent as well as Sequential. A Workflow can contain any combination of Concurrent and Sequential Tasks.

  • Concurrent Tasks – Multiple tasks happening at once.
  • Sequential Tasks – Dependent upon another task being completed.
