CFLOW provides a simple interface to automate your business processes. The initial workflow creation is designed to be simple as the goal here is to help you define the form fields and the flow. The advanced features are available in the Control Center where you can view the detailed field properties, define escalation rules and related email notifications, schedule auto-approval rules, and trigger new requests in other workflows. The control center also lets you re-design your form fields and create hidden fields and advanced arithmetic and string manipulation operations.
Let us know if this functional separation provides you a quick way to get started or would you rather see all features bundled in the initial workflow creation process?
