SharePoint Workflows are designed and proposed to automate business processes and reduce manual operations. Any small, medium, or large organization needs Collaboration and Sharing. SharePoint is the leading business automation platform globally. Multiple companies, from Startups to Large Enterprises, have elected SharePoint for its Business Automation journey. SharePoint workflows are structured collaboration activities that can be integrated into several steps. Each activity represents a functional component of a display work process.

SharePoint Designer is a perfect and effective tool to customize your sites and create powerful workflows to make the working process more simple and efficient. It is a free tool offered by Microsoft that allows organizations to create complex workflows that include parallel and multi-stage serial approvals across the entire business.

It contains several SharePoint Workflow templates that make creating the approval easy, quick, and effective. But if you need to create your workflow, you may do this using the steps of this guide.
