Creating and Managing Workflows in Collaboration

Collaboration provides administrators the ability to create three types of workflows for portal registration, login, and password resets. Multiple workflows can exist within each type and can include an unlimited number of steps and actions required by the assigned user.

Registration Workflows

A registration workflow is used to facilitate the registration process through an Collaboration portal. Multiple registration workflows can be applied to a portal.

Buttons that say + action, + condition, and enable workflow; and tabs that say Actions, Info, Whitelist, and Blacklist.
