Introducing a groundbreaking approach to designing business processes: the Workflow Canvas. It offers a visual and intuitive way to map out processes. With Inistate, you get a blend of simplicity and power. Our model is user-friendly, yet robust enough to tackle complex scenarios. And the best part? Inistate instantly transforms your canvas designs into operational software and mobile apps.
Imagine a choreographed sequence of predefined steps, often repeated, carried out by various individuals or teams. These steps, spanning from hours to months, are the heartbeat of daily operations in a business. By meticulously designing and optimizing these processes on the Workflow Canvas, you pave the way for seamless scaling and growth.
Every process begins with an activity. It's the action someone performs, whether it's contacting a lead or a manager approving a leave. On our canvas, the journey starts with create, a basic activity.
A state acts as a status indicator, showing the current phase of a process and guiding the next steps. It's akin to real-life scenarios, like flight statuses. On our canvas, we initiate with the Draft state, symbolizing a leave request's inception.
This block captures the essence of any process. It's where you list down data points like texts, dates, images, and more. For our leave application, details like:
Forms are the bridge between activities and information. They allow users to input or update values when performing an activity. On our canvas, for the create activity, we'd exclude Reject Reason as it's not relevant at this stage.
The beauty of the Workflow Canvas is its adaptability. As you sketch, you can easily add more states, activities, and forms. For instance, once a leave request is drafted, an employee can submit it, changing its state to Pending Approval. Each action on the canvas can lead to a new state.
Voila! You've just crafted a basic leave application process using the Workflow Canvas. But remember, the canvas is flexible. As your needs evolve, you can introduce more complexities. Once satisfied, let Inistate work its magic, turning your canvas into functional tools.
The Workflow Canvas also allows for defining roles, permissions, and more, ensuring specific activities are performed by the right individuals. And there's so much more to explore! Stay tuned for insights on Notifications, Automation, and Integrations in our upcoming content.
