Workflows, like scenarios, are based on ATG’s process engine architecture. Most workflow classes are analogous to scenario classes.

A major difference, however, is that while you can create custom events and actions for scenarios, there is only a single scenario type. With the workflow classes, you can create any number of different workflow types, each with its own actions and tasks, repository items, and database tables. When you edit a workflow in the ACC, the editor is automatically configured to reflect the specific type of workflow you are editing.
