Create jobs in the Workflow Manager web app

A job is a single unit of work in ArcGIS Workflow Manager. In some organizations, it might be known as a work order or a task. It can be assigned to a person, many people, or a group, and scheduled for completion by a certain date. It includes the workflow steps to complete and the job's details, outlining its scope, and it can also contain additional help for completing steps, attachments, the job's location, and associations to spatial data. Complete the steps in the following sections to create jobs in the Workflow Manager web app.

Tip:

If you have a license for the ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server Advanced role, you can create recurring jobs according to a schedule you set and use a webhook to automatically create a job every time an ArcGIS Survey123 survey is submitted.
