Auto Entry Activity

Writing an AutoEntryActivity

 

AutoEntryActivity is defined in the Workflow Design and works the same as AutoEntry Wizard but without any client interaction. This activity performs automatically when any document moves from an AutoEntryActivity defined workflow queue only to a Host Record.
