• SharePoint 2013 Workflow Fundamentals

    SharePoint 2013 Designer has the ability to incorporate business workflow activities into the SharePoint application and enable users to mirror the behaviors required to process an activity. SharePoint 2013 uses Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows Communication Foundation to represent a SharePoint-driven business process.

    The Windows Workflow Foundation is a collection of workflow activities (e.g. add start time, build a dictionary, do calculation, etc.) that comprise the individual components of a business process. For example, creating a Leave Request workflow within SharePoint 2013. There are four basic steps to setup this process using the SharePoint Designer: 1) add an application to SharePoint, 2) add multiple list columns to the app, 3) create an approval workflow, and 4) customize the Leave Request form.

    The figure below is a high level depiction of the architecture of the SharePoint 2013 infrastructure, which now incorporates Microsoft Azure cloud capabilities and works with SharePoint 2010:
