Workflow Templates

Geocortex Web and Geocortex Mobile offer a variety of built-in workflow templates to simplify your development process. The templates in Geocortex Web and Geocortex Mobile operate similarly to one another, but have a few differences. See Create Workflows in Geocortex Web for how to use templates in Geocortex Web and Create Workflows in Geocortex Mobile for how to use templates in Geocortex Mobile.

Create Workflows in Geocortex Web

Geocortex Web provides a variety of built-in workflow templates that perform common tasks like geocoding or reverse geocoding, buffering, managing attachments, getting attributes or related records, routing, and much more. The available templates depend on the menu that runs the workflow. For example, the I Want To menu offers different templates than Feature Actions menus offer.

Templates are especially useful for creating workflows that take run-time inputs. The templates offered by a Feature Actions menu operate on the current feature set, which is passed to the workflow as a run-time input. Similarly, the templates offered by the Map Context menu operate on the map location that the user right-clicked.

You can use feature action templates to learn how to access information about features (for example, title, description, ID, and geometry type), their geometries (for example, extent, latitude and longitude, and x, y, and z coordinates), and the layers they belong to (for example, ID, path or URL, scale range, and visibility). Similarly, you can learn how to access geometry and map information from the Map Context templates.

We recommend basing your workflows on a template whenever possible. Using a template ensures that the workflow is built on a firm foundation.
