A job is a single space in which teams and departments can collaborate yet still work independently with a focus on their responsibilities. The main building block to articulate work flows are state flows.

A job can be related to multiple state flows. A state flows is predefined by a superuser and can be used as a template which represents all the possible states that might occur to the specified job, depending on the desired content output.

Additionally, the common workspace allows all collaborators to have a transparent discussion section with an @mention and an @reply feature support. Also, predefined state flows have the ultimate advantage of not needing to create or assign tasks on the fly. It supports the automatic reassigning of the work-in-progress content in each state to dedicated teams or individuals. Each state provides the necessary actions to collaborators to perform their duties in a quick pace.

A job should be used when the process to achieve the desired deliverables has a static workflow that is recurrent in the business operations. In other words, it does not require a complex dependency structure with a strict time management planning.
