Use the general workflow blocks to automate arduous, complex, and repetitive tasks.
If you want to get an action approved before you complete a workflow action, you add an Approval block. In effect, the workflow is paused until the approver responds. Different actions can be completed depending on whether the approver approves or rejects the action.
You use the Archive block to automate the removal of objects, such as assets, software, and people records from Oomnitza.
The rules that you add in the Begin block determine which records are archived. As always, click SHOW IN LIST VIEW in the Begin block to make sure that you target the right records.
You use the Conditional Threshold block to set a threshold that can trigger two actions such as when the value is over or under the threshold value. For example, if the value of an asset is more than $1000, request the IT manager's approval before the asset is retired. If the value is less than $1000, retire the asset automatically.
You can send a notification in an email, to the Oomnitza work stream, or both. You can also include a link to the the main object of the workflow such as an asset or person.

You use the Update block to automatically update objects when a specified event occurs. For example, you can use the Update block set the end of life date for an asset when the purchase date for the asset is set.
The Wait block delays the execution of a workflow for a specified period to allow other workflow actions to complete, such as Update or API actions.
Integration workflow blocks
You use the API block to interact with external vendor systems. For example, based on your organization's policy, you deactivate users in Oomnitza who don't log into a SaaS application for a specified period. To delete the user from the SaaS application, you can create an API workflow.
Asset and user extended integrations include presets. Presets are out-of-the-box actions that you can use in workflows to interact with vendor APIs.
