Project Workflows

This page applies to: Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus)

A workflow is used to conduct a process or procedure for a project using a series of consecutive steps, with each step assigned to a user and having a specific completion date.  A workflow is automatically added to a Project Profile when any of the Company and/or Contract Profiles added to the project have existing workflows stored in their Profile.  A workflow that is specific to the project must be added from the Workflows screen in the Project Profile, which displays when the Workflows link is selected.  A workflow is added to a project using the Workflow Wizard.

 A Task List is a simplified version of a workflow in that messaging is not available for individual steps and none of the steps can be approved or declined. Therefore, it is recommended that you review both the Workflow and Task List features to determine which option better suits your needs.

You can perform the following activities related to a project workflow:

When you choose:

  • Select a contract or company radio button, a window displays with a list of the Contract and Company Profiles contained in the project. Once you select a profile, the workflow you add to the Company or Contract Profile is not only added to the Profile in the project, it is also added to the Profile in Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus).
  • Select the current project radio button, the workflow is limited to the Project Profile and only available to yourself and/or the members of your Project Team.
