Configure workflows in Feed

In Bitrix24, you can run workflows directly in Feed, such as requesting leave or submitting an expense report. You can also edit existing workflows or create new ones.

Go to Automation > Workflows > Workflows in Feed. By default, you'll find five workflows:

  • Leave Approval
  • Business Trip
  • General Requests
  • Purchase Request
  • Expense Report

How to create a workflow

1. Create a workflow form. Click Create new and add the workflow data.

  • Settings: Add basic information and specify the sorting order. Enable auto-locking to restrict access if multiple employees try to edit simultaneously.

  • Titles: Rename elements and sections. For example, change Add element to Add leave request for the Leave Approval workflow.

  • Access: Set permissions for employees who will work with the workflow elements and sections.

Workflow preferences

2. Add workflow fields. Each workflow has fields that employees complete before starting it. Open a workflow form and go to Settings (⚙️) > Customize workflow fields. Click Add field and complete the settings.

  • Select the field type and specify its settings. For example, the Money type requires an amount and currency.
