Datapolis Process System features: Workflow designer

Datapolis Process System combines a simple process designer and forms builder with a powerful activities development platform; all fully integrated with each other and with SharePoint. This unique dual nature distinguishes Datapolis Process System and fosters communication among process participants, managers and technical professionals. Stakeholders can share process logic diagrams, consider improvements with real-time thru-put graphs and manage complex processes from a single repository.



Drag and drop designer to model a process and create a workflow 

A web-based designer allows anyone to lay out process logic using icons to represent roles, states and actions then deploy the resulting workflow at the push of a button. Put a SharePoint group or user into a workflow role then drag and drop it onto an action icon to assure that only authorized users can execute actions such as approvals. Select and order SharePoint columns to build data entry forms for each workflow action.

Powerful activities designer to automate functionality 

A powerful activities designer allows programmers to create advanced workflow functionality and automate tasks without cluttering the business layer. You can quickly define an activities tree without programming by using out of the box functions, like Send an Email. Use variables, loops, lookups, and conditions to automate whatever tasks come your way. Create and deploy new custom functions individually or combine them into procedures using the SDK or external tools. 

Built-in forms designer ties user experience to workflow goals 

With just a few clicks, the built-in forms designer produces fully functional user forms for every workflow action. Form data may be drawn from or saved in lists or libraries or may be stored in workflow variables and passed from user to user within the workflow. Existing forms may also be used as templates.

Push button deployment within a managed environment 

Datapolis workflows can be deployed instantly to start a new workflow instance whenever a new list item or library document is created or modified. Workflows can also be started manually or by another workflow and associated with any SharePoint list, library, site or content type. Workflow deployment and user actions are controlled and managed from the Datapolis central administration.

SharePoint interface optimizes user experience

Process participants see only the workflow actions they are permitted to use. They select the action with one click from the context menu, list, ribbon, display form or edit form. A "Tasks" page shows all the tasks that are assigned to the process attender. The history of each workflow instance is presented as a graph with details to reveal and manage process bottlenecks. Data from workflow history can be aggregated and analyzed with tools such as Excel, Reporting Services or other external reporting solutions.
