8 Workflow Inbox

9 Keys to Project Success  Governance & executive-level support  Campus discussion & engagement  Frequent communication with stakeholders  Co-leaders with complimentary skills & focus  Good working relationship between development groups  Separation of front-end user interface & back-end workflow engine development  Clear goals/roles for each effort

10 Next Steps  Complete form builder application  Assist other application owners in taking advantage of new features  Continue to roll out new forms/applications  Migrate existing workflow processes to new system

11 Lessons Learned  Unified inbox was greatly appreciated by campus  Develop a simple system that accommodates a range of users  Flexible definitions of roles and routes  Difference between administrative and academic workflows  Orgs and Depts have flexibility to do their own internal routing  Incremental development and phased releases  Developed and demonstrated WYSIWYG form builder tool first but then decided not to deploy until later phases
