Workflows are a series of industrial, administrative, or other operations that take a piece of work from start to finish. Workflows may be found in a wide range of organisations and sectors. When data is shared between people and/or systems, a process is created.
There are single-action and multi-action workflows.
Single-Action Workflows consist of a single trigger event and a single action. That means you automate your business process to do a single task in response to a trigger event.
Multi-Action Workflows consist of a single trigger event and multiple actions. That means your workflow can perform two or more actions in response to a trigger event
