Automate workflow tasks
Currently tasks require a user to make a decision on them. However there are cases where an external system or DB might be updated and having it sync in to a workflow task to move an item would save the user from having to do it manually. For example, an item is on the approval task list and a user approves the deal in another system that can update an index field in DW. That update causes the item to be approved and move to another task for a different user.
Your idea has been added to our backlog. We are now further investigating the idea.
