Workflows at a Glance
SharePoint workflows are essentially automated processes that make sure projects are completed on time. Because it’s constantly monitoring the status of any project it’s used for, workflows tell you the status of a particular project at all times. For example, if you’re waiting on a document to be approved, SharePoint workflows will quickly tell you who has seen the document, when it was seen, what edits and changes were made, etc. It also tells you who is yet to open the document.
