To add workflow support for a document in Microsoft Dynamics AX, you must create a workflow type. This section describes the procedures to create a workflow type in Microsoft Dynamics AX. The workflow type can then be used to create workflow configurations for the document the Microsoft Dynamics AX.

You create workflow types to define:

  • The workflow document to assign the workflow to.

  • A category that defines the module that the workflow type is available in.

  • Tasks, automated tasks, and approvals supported for the workflow.

  • The workflow started, completed, configuration data change, and canceled event handlers.

  • A SubmitToWorkflowMenuItem.
