About Workflow

Sintel Forms contains a simple but powerful workflow engine that can be used to implement pretty much any business process. The workflow engine uses Statuses and Tasks and is designed around the concept that at any point in time a form can have a specific status and to transition out of that status someone needs to complete a task.

  Note

When configuring a workflow it can be helpful to think about all the statuses a form can potentially be in as it moves through a business process. Once you have a list of those statuses you simply need to create the tasks required to transition the form from one status to another.

The workflow engine within Sintel forms contains 4 key components:

  1. Statuses
    These are the states a form can be in at any point in time.

  2. Tasks
    These are the options that will appear on the form under the "Actions" drop-down that will allow users to move the form from one status to another.

  3. Quorum (optional)
    This controls how many individual people must complete a task before it is considered complete and moves the form to the next status.

  4. Email Notifications (optional)
    These can be configured on both Statuses and Tasks allowing users to be notified when a form changes status or when they are assigned tasks.
