Workflow Manager Overview 
By PenchalaRaju.Yanamala
Using the Workflow Manager Overview
In the Workflow Manager, you define a set of instructions called a workflow toexecute mappings you build in the Designer. Generally, a workflow contains asession and any other task you may want to perform when you run a session.Tasks can include a session, email notification, or scheduling information. Youconnect each task with links in the workflow.You can also create a worklet in the Workflow Manager. A worklet is an objectthat groups a set of tasks. A worklet is similar to a workflow, but withoutscheduling information. You can run a batch of worklets inside a workflow.After you create a workflow, you run the workflow in the Workflow Manager andmonitor it in the Workflow Monitor.
Workflow Manager Options
You can customize the Workflow Manager default options to control the behavior and look of the Workflow Manager tools. You can also configure options, such asgrouping sessions or docking and undocking windows.Related Topics:Customizing Workflow Manager Options

Use the Task Developer to create tasks you want to run in theworkflow.
Workflow Designer.
Use the Workflow Designer to create a workflow byconnecting tasks with links. You can also create tasks in the Workflow Designer as you develop the workflow.
Worklet Designer.
Use the Worklet Designer to create a worklet.
