How do I start a workflow?

Workflows help teams collaborate on documents, manage project tasks, help increase organizational efficiency, and speed up decision making. Workflows also help ensure that individual workflow tasks are completed by the appropriate people and in the appropriate sequence. This article covers using a workflow to convert an issue to a task.

  • Click the Issues link on the Navigation Menu.
