Asite CDE: Visual Workflow Updates

Visual Workflow upgrade - New function to manually push documents to a specific workflow.

Asite has updated its robust Visual Workflow tool to allow Project Administrators manually push an existing document revision to a specific workflow.

Here is a quick overview of the new feature:

  • Project Administrators can now select the workflows applied on the project folder and push it to any specific workflow.

Solution overview:

  • A new right-click option is now available to push the selected revision to a specific workflow.
  • Support single and batch function but it filters out any running workflow records.
  • Project Administrators can now select the workflow applied to the corresponding project folder only.
  • Once saved, the workflow will be triggered and will initiate as a start to the workflow design based on conditions applied.

Asite Platform – Visual Workflow updates

Here is a quick overview of the new features:

Visual Workflow - Enhancing the document review process

Project teams can now take full control of the document review and commenting process.

Key highlights:

  • The Asite Visual workflow tool now allows for the configuration of the comments interface – depending on the role of the publisher, comments are automatically made private or public based.
  • For example, with this update, comments made during the internal review process of drawings and specifications remain private until the Lead Reviewer has incorporated and issued a final comment to all parties.

Project Administrators can now configure system tasks via groovy script and apply them on folders to automatically control the commenting process based on the user’s project role.

A sample groovy script is available. Please refer to the web-help for the groovy script and steps on the configuration.


FAQs:

  • Will I be able to control the private/public comment option according to user role?
    Yes, you can configure the visibility and set the default comment setting for any role as private/public and non-editable/editable.
  • Will I be able to configure multiple roles in the configuration?
    Yes, you can mention multiple project roles in the configuration so that if the comment creator holds one of these roles, the configuration would apply automatically.

    Yes, you can edit the existing workflow definitions and add the system task configured with the groovy script, and it will take effect on all folders where the triggers are applied.
  • Will I be able to combine this with cleared tasks on superseded versions?
    Yes, you can add the system task to clear all incomplete tasks on immediate previous or all superseded revisions so that users can now focus on only their To-Dos on the latest document version.

Asite 20.8

Posted by Denis Antony on Feb 1, 2020 2:32:00 AM

Asite is excited to announce our latest upgrade to the Asite Platform: Release 20.8.

Vendor Marketplace

Capital Project Owners and Prime Contractors can now issue bid opportunities and RFPs to public procurement portals such as the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and other public sector portals directly from Asite. This hugely broadens the audience for potential vendors and can deliver significant value to the procurement process for project owners. For vendors, this means you can express interest and participate with no subscription hassle and zero barrier to entry.

For private-sector project owners, we’ve also introduced seamless integration of the supplier registration and prequalification process to help them confidently source suppliers and then target work packages to qualified trades in their supply chain the first time, keeping procurement costs down.


Integration Announced with Enterprise Cyber-Security (SIEM)

By popular demand from our enterprise customer base, we have now released a production integration connector for enterprise-level SIEM (Security Incident and Event Management) tools. IT Security teams can now configure the Asite platform to push events such as user authentication, project access and user role assignment among many others to their SIEM infrastructure via the Asite workflow engine without writing any underlying code.


Share Dashboards and Search Filters

Graphical dashboards and sophisticated search filters can now be shared with distribution groups and with individual users.


Add Some Color, Any Color

We’ve extended the color-picker options in AppBuilder. You now have access to the entire range of RGB, HEX, and HSL color palettes when you’re designing the next great Asite Form or App for your project team.


Synchronization support added

Seamless synchronization of form status and close-due-date between your Asite apps and the Asite platform is now supported.


Offline Working for all Asite Forms in Field

While using Asite Forms you can now respond to, edit and draft messages in both online and offline mode. Offline messages sync automatically once you are back online.


Visual Workflow engine enhanced

Automatic assignment of any and all form tasks is now supported via system tasks. This means there will be even more time for your users to focus on their day-jobs as the Asite Platform takes care of all the heavy lifting for your project workflows.
