Announcing Workflow Conductor 3.0 for SharePoint 2010

Who says that “the twos” have to be so “terrible”? We can look back pretty fondly on Workflow Conductor’s twos. We watched it grow up quite a bit over the last year, from version 2.0, to version 2.1, and finally version 2.5. Along the way, it picked some useful life skills, like sharing (of workflow templates), cleaning up after itself (with advanced error handling), and dealing with others (through user and group management features). Like any proud parent, we couldn’t be happier with what our little overachiever could do at two. That said, we’re even more excited to see what three brings, which is why we’re happy to announce that Workflow Conductor has just turned 3.0! 

Here are just some of the new presents that Workflow Conductor has brought to its own party… 

  • Conditional Delays – Pause a workflow until one of any number of different custom, user-defined conditions has been met.
  • Email-based Approvals – Let workflow participants approve or reject items directly from email, without ever having to log into SharePoint. You decide who can do it, and where it works.
  • Custom User Tasks – Create custom user polls and store an overall outcome based on configurable business logic.    
  • Improved Lookups – Create multi-value lookups, easily add user and group lookups directly from the widget properties, and perform lookups on even more column types. We even added more Easy References.
  • Updated Widgets – Many of the existing widgets got some new/improved features, including…
    • Almost 20 new date/numerical/string functions for the Calculate widget
    • The ability to limit Repeat for Each Item activity loops to just the items in a specific list view
    • Optional and required fields on user task forms
    • The ability to add attachments to Approval/Feedback task notification emails

All of these new features are just the latest additions to Workflow Conductor’s overflowing bag of tricks, which already includes things like…

  • Performing workflow actions on SharePoint items across other sites and even site collections easily
  • Running each workflow step under specific credentials (the workflow initiator, the workflow designer, or an entirely different account)
  • Advanced error handling that allows workflows to be paused when they encounter an error, and resume from the same spot when the underlying issue has been fixed
  • Working seamlessly with Bamboo’s large portfolio of products, such as PM Central and Alert Plus

Workflow Conductor 3.0 is available now. Download your free 30-day trial, check it out in our online sandbox, or sign up for one of our regularly scheduled webinars. We’re pretty proud of it, but we admit that we might be a little biased, so let us know what you think.

BTW – If your curious what’s coming next for Workflow Conductor, we’re already looking to the future, and we’re planning to ring in the new year with some shiny new workflows in (SharePoint) 2013. Stay tuned to Bamboo Nation for more info!
