Overview

Geocortex Workflow is a flexible tool for turning turning sophisticated business processes into a set of simple, guided end-user interactions. Geocortex Workflow is part of the Geocortex suite of products.

Geocortex Workflow allows you to integrate geographic information and processing with other business tasks to create sophisticated functionality for your applications. For example, you could create a workflow that produces a tax parcel report for the user, or you could create a workflow that gets information about the geology and nearby features of a survey location specified by the user. The possibilities are endless—from automated reporting, to complex spatial analytics, to specific and tailored search experiences, you can use Geocortex Workflow for almost any process that you want to streamline and automate for your users.

Geocortex Workflow was designed to be cross-platform, and it can run in Geocortex Web, Geocortex Mobile, Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, on Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, or on a Geocortex Workflow Server.

Have you explored the Geocortex Workflow Designer?

The Geocortex Workflow Designer has a wide range of built-in activities you can use to satisfy your business case. You can take the behavior of workflow even further by running the commands and operations available in Geocortex Web and Geocortex Mobile.

Start with the Concepts#

Geocortex Workflow is built on the concept of a workflow. A workflow is a collection of connected activities and forms, that can be created using Geocortex Workflow Designer.

  • Workflow activities are the building blocks of a workflow. They allow you to perform actions in sequence that interact with the application and the end user, capturing your business logic in a reusable, easy to understand format.

  • Workflow forms allow the creation of a customizable form that can be displayed to an end user. When combined with activities, you can create powerful experiences which can automate any number of manual processes in your applications.

The Geocortex Workflow Runtime is the engine which runs these generic workflows on multiple platforms, including Geocortex Web and Geocortex Mobile.
