How to Use Custom Workflows
Automatically assign your Requests and Work Orders to match exactly how your team operates
The new Custom Workflows feature allows you to automate your Request and Work Order assignments to maximize your productivity. Now you can customize your UpKeep account to reflect exactly how your team or department operates.
Automatically assign priority, locations, users, teams, categories, assets, due dates, and reminders based on minimal request or work order inputs.
It's so easy to setup your first automation.
How to Make a Custom Workflow
Head to your Settings gear in the lower left hand corner of the menu panel and toggle over to "Automated Workflows". Click "Create New Workflow" button.
Step 1: Give you custom workflow a descriptive title
Step 2: Choose your IF. This is what kicks off the automation, a Request or a Work Order being creating
Step 3: Next choose if there is any other qualifying criteria, such as the Work Order being assigned to a User or Location (this AND step is optional)
Step 4: If you entered AND data, a secondary field will automatically populate with your data to choose from. Choose or enter a date
Step 5: Choose your THEN. This is the effect of your IF plus any AND, such as assigning a Priority or an Asset to that Work Order
Step 6: Select from the secondary field that will automatically populate with your data or enter a date or email
Step 7: Click "Save"!
