Editors' Review

Workflow Designer allows you to build documentation that demonstrates workflows or procedures. For organizations with complex operational structures, this software provides a very easy-to-use tool for creating documents that anyone should be able to follow.

Pros

Complex workflows: In testing, Workflow Designer accommodated any curve balls we threw at it.

Navigation tabs: The right side of the screen is dominated by the tabs, which access a number of very important options for configuring your workflow. You can add tasks, workflow details, standards, and more. The tabs are easy to navigate and provide for all of the major options to create a specific and detailed workflow document.

Familiar drawing tools: Even if you've never created a workflow using this type of program before, the tools should be familiar to you. The drawing tools that let you set up your initial document are similar to those used in all other graphically oriented programs.

Cons

Lack of templates: Some preinstalled templates for basic workflows could have made this program much more useful right out of the box, especially if you've never designed your own before.

Bottom Line

Overall, if you need to create workflow documents, this is a great program. It is flexible, powerful, and should be able to create any type of workflow document that you require.

"Workflow does a great job on simple work flow diagrams."

June 20, 2013  |  By Okie-Ron

 |  Version: Workflow Designer 5.1

Pros

The program is wonderful at doing flat flow charting.

Cons

The program is a little hard to get used to but is not to bad once learned. The printing leaves a little bit to be desired, break points would be nice.

Summary

For the price of the software it is a very good program for doing simple flow charting projects.

"Design, document, report"

July 03, 2012  |  By flingebunt

 |  Version: Workflow Designer 4.02

Pros

Workflow Designer combines workflow charts (or processes or flow charts as my colleagues call them) with documents so that I can add in or link to complete documentation for the chart that I have created.

The best feature, for me anyway, is the reports. At a touch of a button (well a menu and a few buttons anyway) I can automatically generate a report including the workflow chart and associated documentation.

Cons

Lacks few of the more advanced features for making your workflow more pretty, like you might see in something like SmartDraw, but has a lot more other features, in particular documentation, linked documents and reports.

Summary

Basically you can use the diagramming tools to create a chart of your business processes. These charts appear to be fully customizable but I have to admit I haven't gone into all the features because creating basic charts is so easy you don't need to play around with too many features to achieve your goals.

You can then add documentation to each step in your workflow chart. We had many policy and procedure documents stored in a very disorganised manner. Now they are all linked to workflows making it easy to find the right document at the right time.

The reporting features are really nice. Management (in their wisdom) decided to conduct a surprise organisation safety audit last week. I was able to create a report that outlined all of our documentation directly from Workflow Designer. In fact I was the only one in the meeting who could produce all my documents. Needless to say other departments are planning to also start using Workflow Designer. This is great because we can configure Workflow Designer easily for multiple users.
