Intelizign - Workflow Viewer

 A smart viewer to visualize the workflow of Work Items with the capability to transverse through stages.

Description

This extension is designed to give you the ability to render the Work Item status workflow as a graph (visual workflow chart). This provides multiple benefits like graph traversing in forward & backward directions, and displaying of current workflow status and its next actions.

When there is a situation where we need to understand the Work Item status workflow, it is currently displayed in a tabular format which is a bit complex to comprehend.

For new users, it can be a little difficult to understand how to read the workflow. With this plugin, we reduce the time taken and complexity of reading and understanding the Work Item status workflow. The plugin provides an easy interface that highlights the current Work Item status and its connected nodes. The control panel feature gives easy access to users to manage workflow in a graphical view.

  7. Capability to render both as a widget or as a Work Item form section
  8. Simple installation process
