AutoEDMS provides workflow routing of documents, typically through a draft/check/approve cycle.
In this scenario, AutoEDMS automatically protects files that are in the workflow process and keeps an audit trail of all file activity.
The built-in AutoEDMS Workflow Engine
automates the design and administration of workflow processes, and also provides status reporting and audit trails. It improves productivity, by documenting and highlighting delays in workflow processes.
The Workflow Engine is based upon a graphical workflow designer that is used to design
and modify custom workflow processes. By "dragging & dropping" icons that represent the various workflow steps, authorized users can easily build a complete workflow that can be
viewed and printed to document the process (Figure 10). Each stage of the Workflow has properties (parameters) that can be set for file routing, user security, etc. With the optional Advanced Workflow Designer,
custom "ACL" routines can also be added to each step to implement additional workflow functions that may not be addressed by the standard Workflow Engine.
