Workflow allows SharePoint managers to cause various operations to run when certain events happen in the system. Events are either items changing or being added to lists and a manual invocation of a workflow. There are also many operations (or activities) defined in the system that can be used when the event occurs. This can be as simple as adding a task to the site or running custom .NET code.

The solution introduced in this chapter contains two workflows. One is for calculating workbooks that are saved to a document library so that the author does not need to calculate them on his machine. The second workflow saves a series of generated snapshots of a document library for consumption by users.
