Following our work on visual interactive workflow, our current phase of the project focused on the creation and customization of workflows. While in the previous version we used a pre-defined workflow structure, the new version, which we called Wrkflux, allows users to create and design their own workflows. By adding this functionality, we are looking for other forms that workflows can be used, such as management processes, editorial processes, personal organization, mind mapping, and even for board game prototypes.

Workflow Interface for Editorial Process

Scholars usually have to deal with many different types of documents spread in various stages, especially in the case of big projects. Piles and piles of documents scattered in many folders waiting for tagging, revision, approval or whatever it is that needs to be completed. There are workflow management tools available to help us, but they often are too specialized and somewhat complex to use. So, how can we make them easier and more flexible?
