Jobs

A job can be associated with one or more state flows, each representing a recurring process consisting of states, transitions, and actions. Jobs provide a useful space for users to collaborate and include quick actions for easy access to common tasks. With a state flow, at each state of the process, content is automatically reassigned and the job status is automatically updated. It is also possible to associate different quick actions with each state in the state flow.

You can associate a single job with multiple workflows. Conversely, the task workflow for a project is custom and cannot be reused. Also, unlike projects, there are no planning and management features for jobs.

To make it easier to create jobs, you can make any job a template, then use that template to create other jobs with identical or similar settings. In the following example, the Artwork Localization Job is associated with the localization workflow and uses one quick action - Create content. It is also tagged as a template.

After you create a job, assigned users can collaborate at each state of the workflow.

Tip

Use a job if there are no complex dependencies or strict time management requirements. To better understand when to use a project and when to use a job, see Comparing projects and jobs.
