The workflow engine consists of 3 modules:

(:arrow:)The Process Manager is used to construct a workflow process to match a business process, it is the workflow process designer.

(:arrow:)The User Interface is the collection of screens produced by the Process Manager and used by the user to interface with the workflow.

(:arrow:)The Process Monitor is used to track the workflow processes, i.e. execution and progress of each process of the workflow.

Behind these modules is the "engine", a set of PHP classes and scripts that execute the workflow processes.

!!Process Manager (PM)

The Process Manager is used to define the workflow and construct the interface for the user. The workflow process can be as simple or complex as required.

The management of a process is divided into four parts:
# Creation or editing of new or existing processes.
# Define and edit the workflow activities
# Define roles and map user groups to those roles
# Write the source code and design the templates for the interface.

!!!Administer a Process

(:exclaim:)Must have Administrator rights to access this feature.

Hover the mouse over the "workflow" menu item and select the "Admin Processes" item in the dropdown menu.
