How can you get started with Process Street’s Android App?
You probably want to get into using the Process Street Android app. Here’s a step-by-step guide to do just that:
Download the app
If you don’t already have the Process Street Android app on your mobile or tablet, you’ll want to download it from the Google Play Store.
Log into your account
Once you’ve successfully downloaded the Process Street Android app to your mobile or tablet, you can click on the app and login with your email and password, Google/Microsoft account, or Single-Sign-On (SSO).
Don’t have an account? You can go ahead and sign up for a new account on the browser version first. You’ll have access to the app once you do that.
Build or edit Workflows
Just as you can in the browser version, you can build and edit your Workflow in Process Street’s Android App.
Building a Workflow
To build a Workflow, you want to click on the + button at the top right-hand corner. From here, select the option “Workflow”.
Name the workflow and choose how it triggers. After this, you will land on the “Workflow Editor” page. Here you can drag and drop form fields in your tasks.
Click on the blue plus icon to access your task list and navigate to any of the tasks in your existing Workflow. You can also edit your task names once you’re inside the task.
When you’re finished building your Workflow, you can go ahead and publish it by clicking on the three dots located in the top right-hand corner.
Editing your Workflow
Navigate to your Library and click on the Workflow you’d like to edit. Once you’ve selected your Workflow, click on the three dots located at the top right-hand corner and select Edit or Edit draft.
From here, you can make your desired edits to your Workflow. To save these changes, click the three dots at the top right corner of your screen and click on the Publish button.
Run your Workflows
Tap on the ➕ button in the top corner and select Run a Workflow. After you’ve selected this, you’ll see a list of all of your organization’s Workflows.
You can either scroll or use the search box to find the Workflow you wish to run. Once you’ve done this, give your selected Workflow Run a name.
Along with the Run Name, you can also give your Workflow Run a due date and assign it to a member of your organization (or an entire group/department). But this is optional.
Lastly, click the option “Run Workflow” at the bottom of your tablet/mobile screen. That’s it! You’ve now created your Workflow Run.
To view your Workflow Runs, you should navigate to the Reports tab. You can use the filter located in the top left-hand corner to create a new saved view or switch between your existing saved views. You may also tap on your logo located at the top right of your screen to go to your Reports dashboard.
View and reply to comments in Inbox
Your Inbox available on your mobile or tablet lets you use filters to easily search for tasks and Workflow Runs you’ve been assigned to.
Through your Inbox, you can use search filters to view and reply to comments. If you don’t want to use the search filters option, you can simply tap the Comments icon in the navigation tab and view or reply to your comments without having to filter your entire Inbox.
You also have access to any Approvals that have been assigned to you in your Inbox. Use the search filter to navigate to your pending Approvals.
Browse your template library
Tap on the Settings feature to view archived Workflows or create a new folder inside your Library.
Receive push notifications
You now have access to push notifications in your Android app. With this, you’ll be alerted when you have tasks that need to be dealt with. Once you receive a notification, you can tap on it to be taken straight to the task or Workflow in question.
The same goes for when you’re mentioned in a comment. This functions in the same way as email notifications in your browser.
