Component of Ultimate Forms Smart Action Pro, a component of Ultimate Forms, allows you to implement advanced solutions previously only feasible using workflows. You can now define and execute multiple actions of 16 different types, ranging from updating list items or external databases to creating sites and managing permissions. Actions are then executed automatically, manually or based on a timer.

Automating business processes has never been easier, instead of writing code-based workflows or custom event receivers using Visual Studio, you accomplish what you need in minutes using just the browser.

Watch the recorded webinar (from July 23rd, 2013) to see how Smart Action Pro can help you in variety of business scenarios. Find it on our Webinars page.

œUsing Smart Action Pro has allowed us to directly create solutions that generally require custom coding. The ability to allow site owners to create their own business process/workflows enables us to deliver solutions in a much more timely fashion. Thanks.
-- Bill Dewey, Seattle Goodwill

  • Allow users to run action by clicking on a column, a context menu option or a ribbon button
  • Use run-time parameters to make changes to dynamically created or selected site or lists

  • See action history with a click of the mouse, get email notification when actions fail

Define parameters for each action using your current item's values and advanced functions. You also can specify conditions when to run each action (e.g. when Status changes to Completed).

When creating/updating an item, your users can see the actions and optionally decide which actions are to be performed.
