When participating in a workflow, you can contribute information through web-forms. With web-forms you:

  • Complete tasks by filling out simple or complex web-forms.
  • Answer questions and have the answers stored in a database.
  • Place post-it notes on web-forms.
  • See a log of all changes to data within a web-form.
  • View help on a web-form to ensure its correct completion.
  • See informative error messages when web-forms are fill out incorrectly.
  • Lock forms to prevent use by more that one person at a time
  • AJAX enabled forms so you are not waiting for pages to refresh
  • Capture Parent, Child and Grand Child information
  • View, create and update information in 3rd party databases
  • Approve and Reject web-forms.
  • Upload, check-in and check-out documents or files.

Workflow software speeds up communication between relevant parties and makes your life easier, saving you time and your organisation money.


More about AJAX

June 23, 2009

Warning! Technical jargon ahead…

Our workflow software uses AJAX to improve efficiency when filling out forms. The forms simulate a windows type application and make the user experience more simple and accurate.

Wikipedia Definition of AJAX 

Ajax, shorthand for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications. The intent is to make web pages feel more responsive by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes, so that the entire web page does not have to be reloaded each time the user makes a change. This is meant to increase the web page’s interactivity, speed, and usability.  

The Ajax technique uses a combination of:  

XHTML (or HTML) and CSS, for marking up and styling information.  

The DOM accessed with a client-side scripting language, especially ECMAScript implementations such as JavaScript and JScript, to dynamically display and interact with the information presented. 

The XMLHttpRequest object is used to exchange data asynchronously with the web server. In some Ajax frameworks and in certain situations, an IFrame object is used instead of the XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data with the web server, and in other implementations, dynamically added script tags may be used.
