Novell Vibe enables you to create custom workflows to streamline important business processes. Vibe administrators can create workflows and implement them across the entire site, and individual folder and workspace owners can create workflows to be used in their respective folders and workspaces.
After you have created a workflow, you can perform the management functions that are described in this section. You can enable workflows to automatically start when certain types of entries are created in the folder, when users comment on or reply to an entry, or you can configure them to be manually started by users who view the entry.
Examples of workflows include approving documents, ordering supplies, hiring new employees, requesting paid time off, and getting expense reimbursements.
