How To Automate With Fluix

With those benefits in mind, you need to know how to automate workflow steps using Fluix. To deploy a new workflow, just follow these four simple steps.

1. Map Out Your Document Workflows

Before you create your workflow in Fluix, spend some time mapping it out. Identify how data is captured in documents, reviewed, transformed and completed. For example, an inspection report may be submitted by a field inspector, reviewed by a manager, aggregated into a report then used to make equipment upgrade decisions. It is also helpful to identify all the users that are involved in a given workflow.

2. Add Users and Documents To Fluix

Using the preparatory work that you have already done, add the relevant users and documents to Fluix. You can connect your own file storage or upload PDF documents to Fluix’s built-in storage, whichever works best for your team.

3. Create Your Workflow in Fluix

Next, you will need to create the workflow in Fluix. This starts with adding your uploaded documents and users to the workflow. Then, you can design the document flow in our system. This should follow your workflow map. You don’t need to be able to code to be able to create workflows. It is all done using our simple user interface.

4. Pilot/Test the Workflow With End-Users

Finally, you will want to test your workflow with end-users. It is often helpful to run a small-scale pilot to ensure that you have everything set up the way you want. Then, you can scale the workflow to all the relevant teams and users.
