Workflow configuration

Action processing engine

The action processing engine is the technology that processes actions according to your pre-defined workflow rules. Common actions include updating data, communicating with external systems, sending emails and printing reports. Choose from hundreds of pre-defined system actions or create your own! Actions can be run immediately, off-line or at scheduled times.

Customizable forms

Tailor forms to suit your needs using XML form definitions. Create user-defined attribute fields throughout the system—changes you make don’t affect the database schema, which means you can make changes without worrying about losing them in future 2020 Insight versions. Organize and manage all customizations in a dedicated management workbench.
