The Workflow server processes Work Task requests that are automatically generated in response to a certain schedule or data condition, known as a trigger. A Workflow process consists of the execution of an organised repeatable sequence of Work Tasks that process data and produce reports to satisfy a specific business process requirement. The Workflow process module configuration enables the setting of the triggers and Work Tasks necessary to deploy complete business processes, including the automatic instant emailing of reports, forms and alerts to staff and clients.
While the Workflow server is designed to run automatically, there are Web page options that enable the manual execution of Work Tasks, e.g. to re-generate a report under new data conditions.
