Incorporating human workflows in process automation

Long-running business processes often require both manual and automated work to create a unified, end-to-end workflow. The secret to streamlining processes and building better customer experiences starts with knowing how to orchestrate a combination of human- and machine-driven processes.

Quickly build forms for human workflows

Camunda’s drag-and-drop Form Builder makes it easy to design, test, and deploy forms for tasks that must be done by people. Select from a wide variety of form controls, customize the layout and add field validation, and attach the form to a BPMN process model in a few clicks. Or, take advantage of Camunda’s AI Assistant to start building a form with natural language input.

Built-in user interface speeds up development

Tasklist is a ready-to-use interface for employees who need to complete tasks as part of business processes. It’s perfect for rapid prototyping as you design and test process orchestration solutions.
