Mapping Form Field Values to Workflow Process Variables

 

In our March 2nd blog we used the workflow process to route a form for data entry. Let’s revisit that “TestFormDef” workflow definition and look at mapping a form field value to a workflow process variable.

Using Workflow Form to Retrieve Data From External Sources

 

When entering data into a cDevWorkflow form instance, values can be looked up in real-time from other systems using database connections or web-service connections. In order to configure lookups, you must first define your connections to retrieve data. From the cDevWorkflow Configuration Manager, let’s navigate to Status –> Connections page:

Displaying Images on Workflow Forms

 

Today we will demonstrate how to add an image to your workflow forms. Let us edit the “TestFormFile” workflow form definition created in our last blog. Select the Forms->Form Definitions menu option.

Using the File Attachment Control within a Form

Routing a Form Using The Workflow Process

 

Let’s add to the workflow process that we built in our last blog. Open the “TestFormDef” Workflow Definition using the designer.
