The Resource Library has added a new set of videos about Workflows. Have you ever experienced the frustration getting stuck in a project and not knowing the next steps or how to control how something moves along in the correct process? Workflows are designed to help you define your projects from beginning to end by designating a start and finish and controlling how the business activity moves through the process.
What is a Novell Vibe Workflow?:
Novell Vibe workflows are a tool included in the product to help administrators, managers, and users streamline and automate common processes. Some of those processes may be business processes like a proposal approval, document revision, change request, time card, etc. Vibe workflows can be designed an implimented to fill a number of important organizational rolls like mailing/distrobution list, document lifecycle, event reminders, etc. All of this functionality is available out of the box. This and other videos will help you to form the pieces of these processes.
