Data is the backbone of any organization. As a company’s needs evolve the need for automated workflows to manage your data is ever-evolving. With Sitehound’s latest feature release that included Scopes and Triggers, automated workflows have never been so easy to configure and use to keep your data up to date with your business systems.
Benefits of Scopes and Triggers
When it comes to managing tasks and data, there is a clear connection between them. By understanding the benefits of scopes and triggers, you can more effectively manage both tasks and data.
Scopes offer a number of benefits when it comes to managing tasks and data. They can help you track dependencies, automate processes, and visualize data. In addition, they can make it easier to share data between tasks.
Triggers can also be helpful in managing tasks and data. Automate processes, send notifications and keep track of changes with Triggers. In addition, they can help you enforce consistency and keep your data organized.
Combining Scopes and Triggers – Let’s automate
You may have noticed that certain tasks tend to crop up at specific times or after certain events. For example, you may always do the inventory receiving on Monday and you need to update your financial system to reflect the new inventory every Thursday evening. These are triggers and are instrumental when it comes to keeping up with your tasks and data.
One way to make use of triggers is to combine them with scopes. Scopes are basically just sets of data that you’ve decided to query from the inventory management system. So, using our previous example, you could create a scope that includes a dataset of all inventory received on Mondays and a trigger to send you a report or have it interface to your financial system every Thursday evening.
Scopes ensure that the most current data based on your configured filters is available. Triggers keep you, your employees, and your business systems up to date by making sure that tasks are always done when they need to be – whether it’s at the end of the day or before deadlines end.
Other examples for use of Scope and Triggers include:
- Automatically receive stock at an unmanned location
- Get alerted when an item gets broken down or fixed over and over again.
- Notify when a warranty is expiring
The list of automated workflows created using scopes and triggers is unlimited. Use Sitehound to keep your data up to date and your processes efficient. Learn more here.
