Triggers are special functions available in the Workflows to trigger actions under specific conditions. There are several types of triggers, some of them may evaluate logical conditions which can influence the execution of the next trigger / action.


Triggers are available based on the current license, some triggers are part of full optional server modules and available only if the optional module is included in the current license.

Available triggers are:

Triggers can be used in different sections of a Workflow, based on the section functional behavior all or some trigger types may be available under that context.

Triggers can control the Workflow phases such as: Start, End, Failover under the Workflow settings.

Triggers can control the document capturing on the enabled embedded clients, for this functionality they are under the specific Workflow Capture modules.

Triggers are available as processing module inside the Workflow Designer, they are grouped under the specific Triggers section and identified by a distinguish circled black and white icon. When used during the Workflow processing Triggers allow to create conditional dynamic processing paths and / or change or stop the processing path.

When adding a trigger with a conditional means inside the workflow, the designer will automatically add the next node in double copies to design both TRUE and FALSE paths, however the paths can be modified manually.


You can swap the TRUE and FALSE trigger output paths by double clicking on one of the condition line icons.

If conditional triggers are used inside the workflows and one of the TRUE or FALSE paths is missing the process route will just stop without errors being considered not existing.
