Improving the usability of Content Server workflows

By allowing users to initiate workflows directly from any item within Content Server, GCI Power Tools for Workflow streamlines the process of starting workflows with attached files. To further streamline processes, Power Tools for Workflow also provides the facility auto-complete or bypass steps if a majority decision has already been reached, or escalate steps if they pass pre-defined deadlines or if certain criteria are met within the workflow.

Automate more of your repository activities

Automation is at the heart of GCI Power Tools for Workflow. It simplifies workflow development, providing an extensive set of tools for automating actions within Content Server. These can be used to allow workflow processes to programmatically complete functions such as rename, copy, and delete. They can modify attribute and permission data, or create and update Content Server user accounts all within an audited review process. Event triggers provide an additional automation mechanism, thus enabling actions to be performed based on actions happening within the Content Server environment or the passing of time.

The message’s content can be personalized, ensuring that is includes all the information required for a workflow participant to fully understand the current state of the process and giving them direct, one-click access to the actions they are required to take.
