SharePoint Solutions has released Workflow Essentials for SharePoint 2010, which enhances and extends SharePoint Workflow options for SharePoint 2010 Server and SharePoint Foundation 2010. This new SharePoint add-on nearly doubles SharePoint workflow creation possibilities by adding 24 new workflow activities and two new workflow conditions to those which are available out-of-the-box in SharePoint Designer 2010’s workflow designer menu.

Online PR News – 06-January-2011 – – NASHVILLE, Tenn.– SharePoint Solutions has released Workflow Essentials for SharePoint 2010, which enhances and extends SharePoint Workflow options for SharePoint 2010 Server and SharePoint Foundation 2010.

This new SharePoint add-on nearly doubles SharePoint workflow creation possibilities by adding 24 new workflow activities and two new workflow conditions to those which are available out-of-the-box in SharePoint Designer 2010’s workflow designer menu.

“Workflow Essentials for SharePoint 2010 empowers users to build more capable, more sophisticated, more powerful SharePoint 2010 workflows – at a fraction of the cost of other solutions,” said Jeff Cate, president of SharePoint Solutions.

SharePoint 2010 makes it possible to visually design powerful SharePoint workflow solutions using SharePoint Designer 2010’s workflow designer. The power that used to be available only to programmers is now available to any power user.

Unfortunately, the out-of-the-box SharePoint Designer 2010 software is missing a number of commonly required workflow activities. SharePoint Workflow Essentials adds important workflow activities to SharePoint Designer 2010 workflows that are not included out-of-the-box from Microsoft, such as:
• “Loop Through List Items” workflow activity
• “Start Another Workflow” activity
• “Create a SharePoint Site” workflow activity
• “Grant Permission on an Item” workflow activity
• “Add a User to a SharePoint Group” workflow activity

“These new options appear in SharePoint Designer 2010’s workflow designer interface as though they were built right in, so there’s no extra program or interface to learn. Users instantly go from having 37 workflow options to well over 60,” Cate noted.

Workflow Essentials for SharePoint 2010 costs $1,190 per web front-end server (including the mandatory one-year maintenance agreement) for unlimited usage, making it affordable for companies of all sizes to start creating more sophisticated, more powerful, visually-developed, no-code SharePoint Designer 2010 workflows.
