Document Approval and Workflow on Google Drive

Image
Cloud file storage is increasingly important in today’s computing environment, be it for personal, small business or enterprise use. Services like Dropbox, Box.com, Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive are leading the way. Google Drive is Google’s popular file storage service, and is seamlessly integrated with Google Apps.

If you are using Google Apps for Work, having files stored and synchronised seamlessly in the cloud makes collaboration and document sharing easy. But if you need document approvals and routing, using Google Apps Script to enable workflow is too complex and not for everyone. There is a better way to manage the sending of documents for approval within the organisation and that’s through Joget Workflow for Google Apps.

SharePoint or Joget Workflow? Use Both Together!

Image
Recently, there have been questions from customers, partners and the community asking for comparisons between Joget Workflow and Microsoft SharePoint. Actually, the two products are not competing, but in fact complement each other.

SharePoint is a web application portal platform for team collaboration, intranets and enterprise document and content management. While it is possible to extend the capabilities of SharePoint, developing apps for SharePoint is not easy as it requires traditional programming.
On the other hand, Joget Workflow is a platform to easily build web apps and automate processes. With single sign-on (SSO) integration from SharePoint to Joget Workflow, organizations can easily extend the capability of SharePoint by allowing users to seamlessly access custom apps, visually design their own custom applications, or download ready made apps from the Joget Marketplace.
Use SharePoint for sharing and collaboration, and Joget Workflow for building and maintaining apps. To see h…

What is the most exciting thing about Joget Workflow v5?

Image
Joget Workflow v5 comes with many new features and enhancements  You can view the full list of new features from the v5 knowledge base located here.

So what is the most exciting v5 feature? For me it has to be the much enhanced App Generator. Imagine, generate a production ready Joget Workflow app in minutes. It has opened up new possibilities for developers (citizen or otherwise) and business users to greatly speed up their Enterprise app development process. Not just for prototyping but for delivering full functioning production applications.

Well, exactly how is the latest App Generator exciting compared to v4 or to other agile development platform. Here is what I put forward.

Low-Code Platform

First of all, the App Generator made it's first appearance in Joget Workflow v4 beta back in 2013. It was ground breaking in that it allowed users to create a form and from the form, generate a full-fledged functioning web app with or without a workflow approval cycle. And all this witho…

Joget Workflow App Deconstructed

Image
I was kind of surprised to receive an email recently with the question, "What is a Joget Workflow app?" I had thought that we would have published enough information on our website and community knowledge base explaining what it is.

After searching and crawling through our sites, the only reference I could find that explained what a Joget Workflow app is, was in another blog post titled, "Web App Development Methodology for The Citizen Developer (Infographic)". We were so careful in taking care of the tree that we forgot about the forest. Ouch! Our bad!

So here is an explanation with some recycled information.

What is a Joget Workflow App?

A Joget Workflow App is a web application that is built and developed on the Joget Workflow platform to run on the Joget Workflow platform. At its core, the app consist of 2 XML definition files (app and process definition). These definition files are what the platform needs to render the app in an easy-to-use form.

Seamlessly Install Joget Workflow Apps from Joget Marketplace

Image
Recently, we quietly re-launched the Joget Marketplace. The beta marketplace is designed to work with Joget Workflow version 5 (currently available as RC) to enable users to seamlessly download and install Joget Workflow apps.



Log in as an admin user to access the marketplace from the v5 App Center. Click on the "Marketplace" link to load the Marketplace in a pop-up window. Next, create a new marketplace account and log in. To install an app, just browse to the app you want and click on the "Install" button at the top right corner of the pop-up window.



If you are still using Joget Workflow v4, you will need to download the apps from the marketplace and then manually import them into your Joget Workflow server.

The new marketplace will be packed with new apps and plugins. Most of these apps and plugins are free to download and use. You can use these apps or plugins as tutorials or templates to build your own apps and plugins. Some new apps and plugins include:

Enterprise App Store and Form Signatures

Image
There’s a new beta release (v5.0 Beta 11) for Joget Workflow v5 with a couple of interesting new features.

Seamless App Installation from the Joget Marketplace

Firstly, the App Center now offers seamless integration with the Joget Marketplace so apps can be installed at the click of a button.



This allows administrators to easily browse and import apps, in line with the vision of being a full-fledged Enterprise App Store. As usual, the apps can be used immediately, or customized further to fit any unique requirements.

New Form Signature

A new signature form element is now available to capture a user's signature. We’ve received many requests from customers, partners and the community for this feature, so this allows users to draw a signature using a mouse or touch screen.


The final release of Joget Workflow v5 is coming very soon, as we incorporate all the great feedback from the beta testers. In the meantime, check out all the features and download the v5 Beta at http://www.joget.or…
