Workflow Triggers

The Workflow Triggers table presents a table view of triggers associated to each workflow. In AutoMate BPA, workflow triggers can be any available Event(s) or Condition(s) that exist inside a workflow and normally used to "trigger" the start of a task based on a specific system event or condition that takes place. This report helps keep track of all triggering objects that reside within each workflow. It is specially useful when numerous Events and/or Conditions are utilized throughout a workflow's path or when individual Events or Conditions are used in multiple workflows.
