Overview of Workflows
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

Use workflows to automate a set of activities, such as the steps involved in an overlay analysis.

A workflow specifies the activities to perform and the parameters for those activities. For example, in an overlay, the workflow specifies the feature classes or layers to compare. By default, workflows prompt at run time for the values of the parameters. If you prefer, you can specify the parameters in the workflow itself and turn off the prompts.

You can run built-in or custom workflows. You can edit an existing workflow or create one.

Use the Workflow Designer to create or edit the sequence and parameters for the activities in the workflow.
