Digital Asset Management Tools
"With Triggers and Actions, it’s much easier to get files approved; we send our customers an email link notifying them that a file has been uploaded and they review it directly on the server. We don’t have to worry about duplicate files because they review, edit and make comments in one central document."
- Steve Butler, Tapestry
Xinet® WebNative® Suite Triggers and Actions increases efficiency in the workflow with time-saving automation of routine tasks.
Workflow automation with Triggers and Actions boosts productivity with simple, automated management of repetitive, manual tasks. Managed at the administrative level, this versatile feature offers a method for establishing Triggers that initiate Actions in the WebNative Suite database or file system to automate simple and complex workflows. Individual tasks like sending email notification of approved assets, adding metadata to a file, or moving a completed job folder to an archive area on the server, are handled automatically by WebNative Suite—any time, day or night.
Automate Parts of the Workflow
Standard, repetitive tasks take time and can easily be abandoned or delayed for any number of reasons. Moving documents from one folder on the server to another can be a time-consuming job for any traffic coordinator. Sending email notification to a group of reviewers the moment an approval is received or a file is delivered can be burdensome with so many other assignments and deadlines. With Triggers and Actions, simple, repetitive jobs like these can be automated to ensure accuracy and save time in any organization.
A variety of options are available for creating Triggers that set automatic Actions, or a chain Actions—into motion from the database.
This time-saving feature removes small chores from the larger picture, ensuring greater accuracy and simplifying workflow for users whose day-to-day work requires repeated, manual tasks.
Work with Actions
WebNative Suite comes with several Actions ready to use, which provide important utilities used for most workflows in the WebNative Suite environment. A few examples of how Actions work with other
WebNative Suite tools are described here:
from one job folder to another when a datafield is marked as Approved by a client
assets that have expired
These are just a few of the many possibilities that come standard with WebNative Suite. For customers with unique requirements, custom Actions can be created. Any administrator comfortable with scripting or coding can create custom Actions for a specific use in the workflow. Start using Triggers and Actions, and increase productivity today.
