What are Workflows?

Workflows are repeatable, multi-step processes that your firm routinely follows. Think of them as a series of steps you take for various tasks in your firm, whether that’s responding to a client’s request or an internal procedure. They help streamline and standardize processes, making sure you're efficient and consistent. Workflows are copied from Workflow Templates via the Workflow Launcher. Here's what you need to know:


  1. They’re Versatile: From client inquiries to internal processes related to client relationships, Workflows can track Tasks occurring inside and outside Elements
  2. Sequence of Tasks: Workflows include a sequence of Tasks to complete a business process rather than a single to-do item 
  3. Customizable Templates: You can have numerous Workflow Templates and tweak them to suit your business needs
  4. Control is in Your Hands: If you’re the System Administrator, you can define every aspect of the workflow: the steps, the assignees, and even the duration of each step. If you're a regular user, you have the flexibility to modify workflows on an as-needed basis

Update! With the June 2024 Release, Workflow Tasks are now available on the Activties Timeline when the Workflow is associated with the Relationship. With this update, you no longer need to open the Workflow to complete your Workflow related Tasks.

Predefined Salentica Workflows

Salentica Elements provides a set of six common workflows ready for your use. You can use the default Workflows or tweak them to match your specific protocols. However, if you want to create a custom workflow tailored for your firm, and you are a System Administrator, you can do it using the Elements Configuration app. Need help building your own Workflows? Contact the Elements Support Team.

  • Account Opening - Standard
