Workflow Manager allows users to create diagrams by using a drag-and-drop tool. These diagrams allow the consumer to create custom processes and include items that may be unique to the consumer business. Workflows can be used to establish reminders, tasks, sales processes and customer support processes. You can also use workflows to obtain approval for employee time, purchases & expense reports. Workflow also has the ability to set the Release Status to testing mode for comprehensive testing before implementation.
