      Can be created in SPD 2010
      Can be imported/exported from Visio
      Reusable Workflow
      Can be assigned to content type
      Can be exported to .wsp for use in other sites
      Can be imported/exported from Visio
      Can be created in SPD 2010 & VS2010
      Site Workflow
      Not bound by a list
      Manually Started or via OM
      Can be created in SPD 2010 & VS2010
    • 18. Steps to implement business process
    • 19. Creating Workflows in Visio 2010
      Visio has SharePoint Workflow template
      Allows you to create workflow design in Visio
      Workflow can be exported to SharePoint Designer

      Diagram Validation
      Export and Import workflows between Microsoft Visio Premium 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010
      SharePoint Workflow Actions and Conditions
      SharePoint Workflow created in Visio Premium 2010
      Issues window highlighting workflow errors
    • 21. Implement rules in business process
      View all task information
      Customize the whole process, or individual tasks (or both)
      Build robust behaviors
      “If 50% agree, auto-approve”
      “If user is unavailable, escalate to manager”
      “If this task wasn’t meant for me, let me reassign it to another user”
    • 22. Visio Visualization for running processes
      Visualize a single workflow instance
      Not for aggregation, reporting or auditing
      Only for SharePoint Designer
    • 23. SharePoint Workflow created in Visio Premium 2010 exported to SharePoint Designer 2010
      Visio Services allows visualization of an executing workflow on SharePoint Server 2010
      Imported workflow appears as text in SharePoint Designer and can be parameterized and published to SharePoint Server 2010
      SharePoint Designer 2010 allows the workflows to be exported to Visio Premium 2010 for documentation and communication of workflows to a broader audience
