Workflow Forms

What We Do

The CLAS Workflow team strives to support all CLAS departments with the brainstorming, creation, and modification of Universal Workflow forms. In many cases, Universal Workflow can be used to replace paper, PDF, and other online forms. Universal Workflow routes directly to University personnel, departments, and offices to save you the time and energy of manually gathering signatures!

Universal Workflow CAN:

  • Replace Paper, PDF, Word Document Forms with easy to use online forms
  • Replace cumbersome signature processes with workflow approvals
  • Streamline business processes
  • Utilize best practices to make your forms and processes most effective

Universal Workflow CAN"T:

  • Route to individuals outside of the University of Iowa
  • Include sensitive, personally identifiable information (i.e., credit card information, SSN, etc.)
