What is ArcGIS Workflow Manager? 

ArcGIS Workflow Manager is a scalable workflow orchestration and management system that automates and streamlines repeatable business processes in your organization. Think of this product as an orchestra conductor. Just like the conductor is responsible for unifying musicians to produce a smooth and effortless concert performance, Workflow Manager brings together, in real time, people, processes, and products to create and manage seamless end-to-end workflows in your ArcGIS environment. Workflow Manager uses no-code/low-code and can be easily adapted to fit any organization’s needs. 

What can ArcGIS Workflow Manager do for you? 

Workflow Manager provides a framework to  

through a web app to design and manage work, an ArcGIS Pro extension for editing workflows on a desktop, and APIs for extensibility. While organizations with ArcGIS Enterprise deployment have been the primary users to date, we are super excited to announce that ArcGIS Workflow Manager is coming to ArcGIS Online in July! With this release, Online-only organizations can take advantage of out-of-the-box work management capabilities in a software-as-a-service environment.
