Joget Workflow v3.1 BETA Is Here!

Joget Workflow v3.1 BETA is now available for public download!

Download Links:

Joget Workflow is an open source web-based workflow software to develop workflow and Business Process Management applications.
More than just a workflow or BPM platform, Joget offers full-fledged agile development capabilities (consisting of processes, forms, lists, CRUD and UI), not just back-end EAI/orchestration/integration or the task-based interface for traditional workflow/BPM products. So for example, build a sales force automation app instead of just a sales quotation approval process.

What's new in the v3.1 BETA? The primary focus of the v3.1 release is a cleaner, more streamlined user interface along with enhanced form and reporting features.

New Streamlined Design

The web console UI for building and monitoring apps have been given a face-lift to sport a cleaner, more streamlined look with more usable space.

Streamlined Web Console

Also included is a shiny new userview theme (called Corporati) for end-users, and a new bundled sample app for an Employee Self Service portal.

New Corporati Userview Theme


Enhanced Form, List and Userview Features

There are many new enhancements to forms, including support for having multiple pages in a form. There are also new form fields to cater to more diverse needs, such as a Popup Select Box and a List Grid (which can be used to select items from a list) as well as an Image Upload field.

New features in data lists and userviews include the ability to add date range filters, and a new Universal Inbox that consolidates all tasks from any app for each user.

Enhanced Reporting through Integration with JasperReports

In addition to using data lists for tabular reports, it is now possible to support more complex reporting requirements through integration with the popular open source reporting platform JasperReports. By using JasperReports report definitions, sophisticated reports with custom layouts and graphs can be generated and viewed directly within a userview with optional export to PDF and Excel.

JasperReports Integration

Better Multi-Language Support

There is improved support for multiple languages by allowing language selection by user. Each user can select his or her preferred language, so this allows for better accessibility in global deployments.

Note: Please note that v3.1 BETA is a beta release meant for testing all the new features and functionalities, and is not recommended for a production environment. The current stable release is v3.0.3.

Joget Workflow v3 - Part 1 - Process Design Tutorial

UPDATE!
There has been an error in the process design. The activity "Approve Application by Finance" should be then follow on the same route as "Approve Application".

This is the latest design flow.

ORIGINAL POST:

This is the first of four parts video to develop a Joget Workflow v3 app, in this case the Claims App. The following image is the process diagram of the workflow in the Claims App. 


Using the above process diagram as a reference, you can learn how to design the same process in the following video tutorial. In the tutorial you will learn the following:
  • How to add workflow activities and system tools to your processes.
  • Set asynchronous or synchronous deadlines to send reminders if task is not perform during the specified time or to escalate a task to the next approval level if not perform in the predefined time frame.
  • Set activity and process level Service Level Agreement (SLA) to monitor the workflow to ensure that tasks are performed within the accepted time frame.
  • Add and modify route and parallel route conditions in your workflow.
  • Map participants to the swim lane.
  • Set the workflow variables for routing your process.


Part 2 to 4 of the video tutorials will cover Forms, List and Userview designs. They are still a work in progress and will be published as soon as possible.
