SharePoint and WorkFlows

  Asked By: Valencia    Date: Dec 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 701

I am new to Sharepoint. I recently completed a developer course at
mindsharp, since i was so new i was moved to the designer course. I
have been tasked to develop a work flow for a document approval
process. My question is:

Where would I begin?
I think you can do workflows in visual studio(which i hear is very hard)
I heard you can use SharePoint Designer
I heard you can use SharePoint it's self.

You can use either Visual Studio or SharePoint designer  to
create workflows. For most workflows  that you will probably need SharePoint
designer will suffice. However when you need to do something a little more
tricky you have no choice but to use Visual Studio. My suggestion is try
SharePoint designer first as it is a little easier to use as it uses a
wizard approach with rules. Hopefully this help. The best way to start is
create yourself a demo team site, open it in SharePoint designer then select
the File > New > Workflow option and follow he wizard and have a ply. It is
really easy to create some very complex workflows.

One other thing: if you do come across a complex task that you can't
accomplish with Designer, be sure to do some googling for Custom Activities
that may meet your needs. There are quite a few out there.
