SharePoint Online Workflows
- Published: 26 November 2018
As discussed in earlier SharePoint blogs there are several aspects that assist in the overall running and functioning of a SharePoint Solution. This includes the creation and deployment of a SharePoint Online Workflow.
There are numerous ways that you can build a SharePoint workflow including, OOTB (Out of the box), SharePoint Designer and Microsoft Flow.
- OOTB - Out of The Box refers to governance defined by the relevancy of SharePoint features that in turn support a company’s vision and overall productivity.
- SharePoint Designer – This application enables a unique site authoring experience where developers and designers are able to create, customise and design efficient workflows.
- Microsoft Workflow – Described as a series of tasks that produce an outcome - assisting with managing tasks and business processes.
Consider these two simple steps before developing and deploying your SharePoint Workflow.
- The ‘TEA’ Method – Achieved by separating your content and other components into three categories including, Tasks, Emails and Actions. This will help later on when creating a visual diagram in SharePoint Designer or Microsoft Flow.
- Create a flow chart using tools such as Visio - this will provide a great visual diagram of the production sequence.
