Built-in document workflows: SharePoint now includes workflow capabilities built on Windows Workflow Foundation that are integrated with the document management repository and forms capabilities. The shipping workflow processes include:
- Collect signatures
- Collect feedback,
- Disposition approval
- Web content translation
- Issue tracking
Workflow tasks can be created and assigned to participants along with notifications to alert them about the task. SharePoint provides a status page associated with the workflow so participants can follow the progress of a workflow. The status page also includes workflow history information that is specifically designed by the workflow author. The standard SharePoint workflows can by modified using the Office SharePoint Designer 2007, which is the successor product to FrontPage®.
After the workflow is deployed to a site collection, it appears in the list of available workflows that administrators can add to content types or libraries. Once the workflow is added to a document library end users can then start the workflow for any document in that DM Library.
