Work flow work horse - 5 years running we couldn't do our jo

We have used workbox workflows on SharePoint since 2009 and we couldn't do our job without it. Most of our users work from home building documents that are published daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly. The workflows allow users to contribute research items, write articles, translate articles, edit articles, review quality and distribute products sequentially to meet deadlines. In some cases we will work around the clock to meet a daily deadline and we simply couldn't coordinate these complex sequential time sensitive work processes without work box.

Product Reviews

Pros
Powerful - allows me to automate almost any SharePoint task without programming
Flexible - we have workflows that kick off other workflows, or send emails, work on libraries, lists, items, documents
Adaptable - users can kick off actions on one item at a time or on multiple items at one time.
Re-usable: Whole workflows or individual actions can be saved and re-used.
Built in security - I can specify which user group can do any action.
Uses timers - we send a reminder emails if a user has not acted on something in his work queue after a period of time
Integrated - totally integrated into SharePoint dropdowns and ribbon making easy for end users to initiate actions

Cons
Documentation is spotty. Figuring out how build an action to do something new can be a mystery.
