As a seasoned SharePoint developer with experience in automating business processes, I have always sought tools that can simplify and enhance the automation journey. Recently, I discovered ULTIMATEFORMS, a powerful platform that streamlines the automation of business processes with its robust set of features.

Project Experience

One of my notable projects involved automating the invoice approval process for a manufacturing company. The challenge was to ensure timely approvals while minimizing manual interventions. Using traditional SharePoint workflows required extensive coding and constant monitoring, leading to several bottlenecks and inefficiencies. This experience highlighted the need for a more efficient solution, which I found in ULTIMATEFORMS.

Step-by-Step Guide to Automate a Business Process

Step 1: Access Action Settings

  • Navigate to the List Design page and select Action in Infowise app.

Step 2: Create an Action Column

  • Before creating actions, you must create at least one action column. This column provides the user interface for action display/management and stores the execution history.

Step 3: Define a New Action

  • Select "New Action" and choose the type of action you want to create (e.g., Update List Item, Send Email).
  • Configure the action settings, including conditions for execution and values based on the current list item.


Step 4: Set Action Conditions

  • Define conditions under which the action should be executed. For instance, trigger the action when a new item is created or updated.

Step 5: Test and Monitor Actions

  • Once the action is set up, test it to ensure it works as expected. Use the Action History to monitor execution and outcomes.


Automating business processes with ULTIMATEFORMS not only streamlines workflows but also enhances efficiency and accuracy. Its extensive range of automation tools allows for flexible and powerful process automation. I encourage you to explore ULTIMATEFORMS and leverage its capabilities to transform your business operations.
