A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of activity, enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information.
A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) allows you to effectively manage the flow of samples and associated data to improve lab efficiency. A LIMS helps standardize workflows, tests and procedures, while providing accurate controls of the process. Instruments may be integrated into the LIMS to automate collection of test data, ensuring they are properly calibrated and operated by trained staff only.
Workflows need to be first created by the administrators. Once created, they can be used when a record is created.
To set a workflow for a record, you can either:
Choose a workflow when you creating a record.
If a record is already exists, choose a workflow on the Overview of a record.

Once a workflow is set for a record, it is available to view via click "Workflow" at the sidebar.
This page will display the diagram for the workflow, as well as all other workflows follow it. All steps are also included. Please see the workflow configuration for more details:
Workflow steps can be added or deleted. This can be done via clicking the "Steps" as the workflow view:
